Book Information


Title: Intonation Systems
Edited By: Daniel Hirst
Albert Di Cristo

This is the first comprehensive study of the intonation of different
languages of the world, written by a team of leading scholars in the field,
most of whom are native speakers of the language in question. Surveying
twenty languages, the volume introduces a new system for the multilingual
transcription of intonation patterns. The chapters are organized following
the same general outline to highlight the differences among languages. The
emphasis is on description and comparison, rather than on theory, making
this an invaluable sourcebook for researchers in the field.
