This book contains a collection of cutting-edge papers on methodologicalaspects of prosody research. Current approaches to the gathering,treatment, and interpretation of prosodic data are discussed by experts inthe field, illustrated by their own empirical research. Contributions focuson the choice and measurement of prosodic parameters, the establishment ofprosodic categories, annotation structures for spoken-language data, andexperimental methods for production and perception studies (including theconstruction of materials, modes of presentation, online vs. offline tasks,judgement scales, data processing, and statistical evaluation). The volumewill serve as a handbook linking data collection and interpretation,allowing researchers in linguistics and related fields to make moreinformed decisions concerning their empirical work in prosody.
