PUBLISHER:Cambridge University Press; $59.95;

When published in 1986, this book was the first to survey intonation
in all its aspects, both in English and universally. In this updated
edition, while the basic descriptive facts of the form and use of
intonation are presented in the British nuclear tone tradition, there
is nevertheless extensive comparison with other theoretical
frameworks, in particular with the ToBI framework, which has become
widespread in the United States. The author has expanded the sections
on historical background, different theoretical approaches and
sociolinguistic variation. 

Intonation remains a basic reference book for linguists, phoneticians,
speech therapists and all those concerned with speech in any way.;
Contents: 1. Preliminaries; 2. Stress, accent, and rhythm; 3. The
forms of intonation; 4. The fun! ctions of intonation; 5. Comparative
intonation; 6. Conspectus; References; Subject index; Author index.;
