Summary:   FOR A QUERY ABOUT INTONATION BREAK ON NOV 13, I'VE RECEIVED A LOT OF EMAILS FROM LINGUISTS. I WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS MY THANKS TO THE FOLLOWING PEOPLE: VERNON CURTS, CHRIS JOHNS, BRUCE DESPAIN, KIM SCHULTE, ROGER LASS, JAKOB DEMPSEY, PETER T. DANIELS, BART MATHIAS, ELENA BASHIR, FELICIA BRISCOE, MIKE SZELOG, AND KATHY HANSEN.

NO DIFFERENCE IN INTONATION BREAK WAS REPORTED BETWEEN THE TWO COORIDNATE PHRASES OF (2A) AND (2B). AND MOST OF THE RESPONDENTS POINTED OUT THAT (1A) IS UNGRAMMATICAL, SUGGESTING THAT IT SHOULD BE ''IT'SNICE WARM WEATHER.''

FOLLOWING IS THE ORIGINAL QUERY:
I'M WONDERING IF THE FOLLOWING SENTENCES, PARTICULARLY THE PARTS IN UPPER CASE, HAVE ANY DIFFERENCE IN INTONATION BREAK. I WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF YOU COULD SEND ME YOUR OPINIONS AT EUNGCHEON@GGU.AC.KR. WHEN I GET ENOUGH RESPONSES, I WILL POST A SUMMARY.

(1) A. IT' NICE AND WARM WEATHER.
B. THE WEATHER IS NICE AND WARM.
(2) A. THERE IS A RED AND WHITE SHEET IN THE OTHER ROOM.
B. THE SHEET IS RED AND WHITE.

BEST WISHES,

EUNG-CHEON HAH
