Title: Intonational Phrasing in Romance and Germanic
Subtitle: Cross-linguistic and bilingual studies
Edited By: Christopher D. Gabriel
Conxita Lleó

Series Title: Hamburg Studies on Multilingualism 10
Description:

Languages differ regarding both the ways they group words into phrases and
the surface cues they use to indicate relevant phrasing patterns. Modeling
intonation in as many languages as possible has become a central goal of
theoretical and empirical linguistics. However, intonational research has
only recently begun to devote attention to the analysis of spontaneous
speech, one of the central issues of this book. The volume contains eight
contributions by international scholars, some of them members of the
Research Center on “Multilingualism” (Hamburg, Germany), all of them
experts on intonation and most also on multilingualism. A central goal of
the present volume is to expand the cross-linguistic and multilingual
perspective of phrasing, focusing thereby on languages from the Romance and
Germanic families, among them Catalan, French, German, Italian, Occitan,
and Spanish. Within Spanish, special attention is given to several
Argentinean varieties, and within Italian, the Neapolitan variety is
compared with the standard one.
