The volume represents a state-of-the-art snapshot of the research on prosodyfor phoneticians, linguists and speech technologists. It covers well-knownmodels and languages. How are prosodies linked to speech sounds? What are therelations between prosody and grammar? What does speech perception tell usabout prosody, particularly about the constituting elements of intonation andrhythm? The papers of the volume address questions like these with a specialfocus on how the notion of context-based coding, the knowledge of prosodicfunctions and the communicative embedding of prosodic elements can advance ourunderstanding of prosody.
