Title: Tones and Tunes
Subtitle: Volume 2: Experimental Studies in Word and Sentence Prosody
Edited By: Carlos Gussenhoven
Tomas Riad
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sp/detail.cfm?id=IS-9783110190588-1
Series Title: Phonology and Phonetics 12.2
Description:

Despite the recent advances in the integration of lexical tone and
intonation in phonological theory, all too often the study of intonation
and the study of lexical tone are viewed as belonging to different research
traditions.

Volume 2 presents 14 experimental studies of lexical tone and intonation in
a wide variety of languages. Six papers deal with the discriminability or
the function of intonation contours and lexical tones in specific
languages, as established on the basis of listener responses, as well as
with brain activation patterns resulting from the perception of tonal and
intonational stimuli. The remaining eight papers report on detailed
phonetic findings on a variety of tonal phenomena in a number of languages,
including declination in tone languages, final lowering, consonant-tone
interactions and pitch target alignment.

Of Interest To: Libraries, Researchers and Advanced Students of Phonetics
