Intonational Rises and Dialog Acts in the Australian English Map Task.
Fletcher, Janet; Stirling, Lesley; Mushin, Ilana; Wales, Roger
Language and Speech, v45 n3 p229-53 Sep 2002
Eight map task dialogs representative of general Australian English were coded for speaker turn and for dialog acts using a version of SWBD-DAMSL, a dialog act annotation scheme. High, low, simple, and complex rising tunes, and any corresponding dialog act codes were then compared. The Australian statement high rise (usually realized as a L H-H%tune) or "uptalk," appears to be more closely related to the classic continuation rises.(Author/VWL)
