The IPO theory of intonational structure Evidence for phonological assumptions in describing intonation Paralanguage and intonation 2 Fundamental concepts of the autosegmental-metrical theory Sequential tonal structure 45Pages: This book discusses the morphological properties of intonation, building on past research to support the long-recognized relationship between the functions and meanings of discourse particles and the functions and meanings of intonation. Intonational Meaning The Nature of Intonational Meaning Context-dependent vs. context.

    Intonation And Meaning relevant aspects of discourse structure, intonational meaning, and, most importantly, the relations between them. He explains and compares the most influential theories in these areas, and outlines the questions that remain open for future research. This wide-ranging book involves aspects of phonetics, phonology. Metrical structure and prosodic structure are usually used without a meaning difference. (11) Cf. Gussenhoven ( f.) for a discussion. (12) The prosodic word is not included in the present comparison, being the level of stress assignment and, strictly speaking, not an intonational domain.

    Prosodic structure features prominently in work on metrical stress, in intonational phonology and prosodic phonology (where it provides the domain for segmental and supra-segmental processes), but specifics vary widely in the literature. Following Truckenbrodt, a simple version of the prosodic hierarchy, using phonological phrases, intermediate phrases, and intonational phrases above the word Author: Daniel Büring. Abstract. The paper briefly reviews a theory of intonational prosody and its relation to syntax, and to certain oppositions of discourse meaning that have variously been called “topic and comment”, “theme and rheme”, “given and new”, or “presupposition and focus.”Cited by:

Robert Ladd, Jr. 's The Structure of Intonational Meaning is an excellent intro-duction to intonation in English, clarifying the issues, pointing out the features which linguists do agree on, and contributing some illuminating insights of his own.

The book begins with a careful review of. This book provides a state-of-the-art survey of intonation and prosodic structure. Taking a phonological perspective, it shows how morpho-syntactic constituents are mapped to prosodic constituents according to well-formedness by: 6.

This volume provides a guide to what we know about the interplay between prosody-stress, phrasing, and melody-and interpretation-felicity in discourse, inferences, and emphasis. Speakers can modulate the meaning and effects of their utterances by changing the location of stress or of pauses, and by choosing the melody of their sentences.

Intonational meaning Intonational meaning Prieto, Pilar INTRODUCTION One of the key aspects of human interaction is the fact that communication involves not only the expression of propositional content in the form of spoken words but also the expression of the intentions, beliefs, commitments, and feelings of the interlocutors with respect to those : Prieto, Pilar.

It presents the main phenomena involved, and introduces current formal analyses of prosodic structure, relevant aspects of discourse structure, intonational meaning, and the relations between them. Intonation is a subject of increasing importance in fields from syntax to speech recognition.

Robert Ladd provides an exceptionally clear presentation of the key ideas of the influential autosegmental-metrical theory of intonational phonology associated with the work of Janet Pierrehumbert.

He outlines the evidence for the theory's basic tenets and relates them to the ideas of competing 5/5(2). Speakers can modulate the meaning and effects of their utterances by changing the location of stress or of pauses, and by choosing the melody of their sentences—jointly referred to as Information Structure.

Although these factors often do not change the literal meaning of what is said, tools and models to describe these more elusive aspects of linguistic meaning have, in recent years, been Author: Daniel Büring.

The substantive chapters on the analysis and transcription of pitch contours, pitch range, sentence stress and prosodic structure have been reorganised and updated. In addition, there is an associated website with sound files of the example sentences discussed in the book.

A certain meaning can be attributed to intonation contours that differ phonologically between the two dialects. However, the general shape of contours and its association with meaning has been proved to be identical in the two dialects and compared to a similar analysis of intonational meaning of British English.

The notion of focus structure in this work refers to the distinction between categorical, thetic and identificational sentences.

The book appeals to generative linguists and to functional linguists who do not believe in an unbridgeable gap between the formal and functional analysis of language.
