Abstract:

The main purpose of this book is to take a step forward in the development
of a consensus-based transcription system for Spanish intonation within the
Tones and Break Indices (ToBI) framework by taking into account data from
different dialectal varieties. The book comprises ten chapters which
describe the basic intonational patterns of the following dialects of
Spanish: Castilian, Cantabrian, Canarian, Dominican, Puerto Rican,
Venezuelan Andean, Ecuadorian Andean, Chilean, Argentinian and Mexican
Spanish.

Each chapter offers a Sp_ToBI analysis of the basic intonational contrasts
found in these dialects that is based on a wide range of data including a
variety of statements, yes-no questions, wh- questions, echo questions, as
well as vocatives and imperatives. One of the advantages of the present
work is that all chapters share a common methodology in data collection,
thus permitting a precise comparison of the resulting intonation contours
and their analyses. Digital recordings of the actual data on which the
chapters are based are available at the website of the Interactive Online
Atlas of Spanish Intonation (Atlas interactivo de entonación del español,
accessible at http://prosodia.upf.edu/atlasentonacion/). We hope that the
work presented here will serve as an empirical groundwork for the
establishment of a standard, comprehensive system for transcribing the
intonation of the Spanish language.
