Prosodic Typology II : The Phonology of Intonation and Phrasing, Hardback Book

Prosodic Typology II : The Phonology of Intonation and Phrasing Hardback

Edited by Sun-Ah (University of California) Jun


This volume contains detailed surveys of the intonational phonology of fourteen typologically diverse languages, described in the Autosegmental-Metrical framework.

Unlike the first volume, half of the languages, which vary in their word prosody as well as their geographic distribution, are understudied languages or researched through fieldwork.

All chapters provide the prosodic structure and intonational categories of the language as well as a description of focusprosody.

The book concludes with a chapter on the methodology of studying intonation from data collection to analysis and a chapter which proposes a new way of characterizing the intonation of the world's languages.

The sound files which accompany the descriptions are available on the book's companionwebsite.
