Issues in the Study of Intonation in Language Varieties
Warren, Paul
Language and Speech, v48 n4 p345-358 2005
Some key issues in the study of intonation in language varieties are presented and discussed with reference to recent research on the intonation of New Zealand English. The particular issues that are highlighted include the determination of the intonational phonological categories of a language variety, and the attribution of varietal differences as realizational differences between varieties or as systemic differences in the categories found to be present in each variety. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
