Title: Spoken Communication
Edited By: FrancescaM.Dovetto
Description:

The overall goal of the volume is to offer an extensive and qualified
description of the current research that may stimulate genuine attention on
Spoken communication.
The volume gives updated insights on theoretical aspects, specific case
studies and the issues of speech representation as well. In the first part
different aspects of the cognitive and pragmatic perspectives are analyzed.
An insightful account of language pathologies, multimodal spoken dialog
interaction and voice expressiveness is given in part two, while sign
languages, representation of intonation and automatic detection of
disfluencies in speech transcriptions are investigated in the last section.
