9780199253968: Prosodic Features and Prosodic Structure: The Phonology of Suprasegmentals (Oxford Linguistics)

This book focuses on the description and analysis of the "prosodic" features of speech, including length, accent and stress, tone, and intonation. Fox identifies criteria for defining these features and examines the features in depth from a variety of theoretical perspectives. Throughout, he emphasizes the relationships and interdependencies between the different features and their place in the overall structure and organization of utterances.

About the Author:

Dr Anthony Fox is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Linguistics and Phonetics at the University of Leeds, where he has been Head of Department since 1989. He studied Modern Languages and Phonetics at the University of Edinburgh, obtaining his doctorate with a dissertation on the intonation of German and English. His research has been mainly devoted to intonation, particularly in relation to other prosodic features, and to intonational typology. He has also published books on the structure of German and on linguistic reconstruction.

Review:

`Review from previous edition A superb synthesis of all approaches to all aspects of prosody.' Alan Cruttenden, University of Manchester

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This book is concerned with the linguistic analysis and description of the prosodic features of speech, including length, accent and stress, tone, and intonation. After attempting to identify criteria for the definition of prosodic features, Anthony Fox examines in depth each of these features in turn from a variety of theoretical perspectives, including both earlier views and current models, especially those of a non-linear kind. The focus is, however, on the features themselves rather than on a specific theoretical framework. An important characteristic of the book is that it does not simply consider the prosodic features in isolation as independent systems; throughout, the emphasis is on the relationships and interdependencies between the different features and their place in the overall structure and organization of utterances. A final chapter considers the nature of prosodic structure itself, and the categories and concepts necessary for its description. Anthony Fox has written a work of great scholarship and learning which is expressed in a way that will be accessible to all linguists from advanced undergraduates to postdoctoral researchers. It will be of particular interest to phonologists, phoneticians, and researchers in related applied fields such as speech pathology and speech synthesis. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780199253968
