Prosodic Analysis. Language and Language Learning [Series] Number 25.
Palmer, F. R., Ed.
The sixteen articles on prosodic analysis collected here were written by members of the Department of Phonetics and Linguistics at the School of Oriental and African Studies, between the years 1948 and 1961. In 1948, Professor Firth, then head of the department, published his paper "Sounds and Prosodies," in which he launched the new theory of prosodic analysis. His paper is reprinted as the first in this collection, which is arranged chronologically so that the subsequent papers show how the theory has been exploited. With one exception, the articles are reprinted from journals. The authors are: J.R. Firth, E.J.A. Henderson, W.S. Allen, J. Carnochan, R.H. Robins, R.K. Sprigg, F.R. Palmer, N.C. Scott, Natalie Waterson, M.A.K. Halliday, and J.T. Bendor-Samuel. (Author/AMM)
