La prosodie du discourse rapporte. Recherches sociolinguistiques 3 (The Prosody of Reported Discourse. Sociolinguistic Research 3).
A study investigated the relationship between syntax, discourse, and suprasegmentals in reported utterances (e.g., "He said,..."). The study is intended as both theoretical and descriptive, specifically, proposing a model of intonation in spontaneous oral Quebec French. The first chapter reviews research on Quebec French prosody, on oral spontaneous Quebec French, and on reported discourse. The second chapter presents global principles of intonation and describes the research methodology used in the current study. Chapter three analyzes prosodic production in a corpus of 215 utterances representative of various types of reported discourse. The fourth chapter analyzes perception of the utterances and their prosodic features by 47 different listeners. Contains 121 references. (MSE)
