Prosodic Systems and Intonation in English. Cambridge Studies in Linguistics 1.
Crystal, David
Presented is a systematic linguistic description of such features as intonation and stress, usually summed up in the phrase "tone of voice." Paying special attention to English, the author has aimed to present as complete a description as possible, and to clarify the theoretical concepts needed to talk precisely about these phenomena. Following some preliminary considerations and a discussion of past work on prosodic features, the author discusses voice quality and sound attributes in prosodic study, the prosodic features and the intonation system of English, and the grammar and semantics of intonation. An extensive bibliography, an author index, and a subject index are appended. (AMM)
