9780521012003: The Phonology of Tone and Intonation (Research Surveys in Linguistics)

Using examples from a wide variety of languages, this book reveals why speakers vary their pitch, what these variations mean, and how they are integrated into our grammars. All languages use modulations in pitch to form utterances. Pitch modulation encodes lexical "tone" to signal boundaries between morphemes or words, and encodes "intonation" to give words and sentences an additional meaning that isn't part of their original sense.

Book Description:

All languages use modulations in pitch to give shape to utterances. Pitch modulation functions in two ways: to encode lexical 'tone', that is, to signal boundaries between morphemes or words, and to encode 'intonation', that is, to give words and sentences a further meaning that isn't part of the meaning of the words themselves. Using examples from a wide variety of languages, this book explains why speakers vary their pitch, what these variations mean, and how they are integrated into our grammars.

About the Author:

Carlos Gussenhoven is Professor and Chair of General and Experimental Phonology at the University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Descrizione libro Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2004. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. First Edition. Tone and Intonation are two types of pitch variation, which are used by speakers of all languages in order to give shape to utterances. More specifically, tone encodes segments and morphemes, and intonation gives utterances a further discoursal meaning that is independent of the meanings of the words themselves. In this comprehensive survey, Carlos Gussenhoven provides an up-to-date overview of research into tone and intonation, discussing why speakers vary their pitch, what pitch variations mean, and how they are integrated into our grammars. He also explains why intonation in part appears to be universally understood, while at other times it is language-specific and can lead to misunderstandings. After eight chapters on general topics relating to pitch modulation, the book’s central arguments are illustrated with comprehensive phonological descriptions - partly in Optimality Theory - of the tonal and intonational systems of six languages, including Japanese, Dutch, and English. • Includes comprehensive and detailed analyses of the tonal and intonational systems of six languages • Presents an overview of the development of phonological theory since 1988, including Optimality Theoretic treatments • Presents a phsysiologically based theory of universal (paralinguistic) meaning of pitch variation Contents 1. Pitch in humans and machines; 2. Pitch in language I: stress and intonation; 3. Pitch in language II: tone; 4. Intonation and language; 5. Paralinguistics: three biological codes; 6. Downtrends; 7.
