Over 100 authentic corpus examples are discussed in the text, which will appeal to those who want to see 'real data'
Addresses the problem of relating the acoustic and phonological descriptions of intonation. A multi-level approach and new description systems on the phonological and phonetic levels are proposed. Computer algorithms attempt to analyze and synthesize F0 contours using the new systems. Experiments and results are presented.
