Intonation and the Comma.
Cruttenden, Alan
Visible Language, v25 n1 p54-73 Win 1991
Explores one aspect of the relationship between intonation and punctuation. Outlines the historical development of punctuation, and compares twentieth-century punctuation rules with what is known about the division of connected speech into intonation-groups. Suggests that, where syntactic prescription and intonational usage conflict, a return to more elocutionary punctuation would aid intelligibility. (PRA)
