Intonational Marking of Contrastive Focus in Madrid Spanish

Timothy L.Face
University of Minnesota

The present volume presents the results of an experimental study on
the phonetics and phonology of the intonation patterns used to convey
contrastive focus in Madrid Spanish. It contributes to recent and
ongoing research on Spanish intonation by addressing an area that has
been of interest to various scholars of Spanish intonation, yet has
not received an adequate treatment to this point. This study is
intended both for the Hispanist interested in the functions of Spanish
intonation and for the theoretical phonologist working on intonation.

The presentation is both data-driven, providing illustrations and
discussions of the various intonation patterns that function as
markers of contrastive focus, and theoretical, providing a formal
phonological analysis of the intonation patterns observed. The
material, following an introductory chapter and a chapter on the
experimental methodology employed, is organized into four main
chapters. The topics of these chapters are the intonation of broad
focus declaratives, the intonation on the focal word, the intonation
on the non-focal words of sentences containing a focal word, and the
influence of syntactic constituency on focal intonation.

A concluding chapter summarizes the material presented throughout the
book, considers its larger implications, and suggests directions for
future research.

Timothy L. Face is Assistant Professor of Hispanic Linguistics at the
University of Minnesota. He is the author of several articles on
Spanish intonation and other areas of Spanish phonetics and
phonology.
