We begin by discussing two main structures in discourse that one must consider when.

Discourse Intonation views intonation as more than just its attitudinal or grammatical function; it takes intonation to the next level by looking at the larger contexts where sentences occur.

Intonation in Text and Discourse describes the way in which speech melody, or intonation, is used to signal the structure of spoken texts. It examines the role of intonation in clarifying the relationship between successive utterances, from close cohesive ties ('middles') to major breaks for a new topic ('ends' and 'beginnings').

Prosody is an integral part of the spoken language. It conveys structure and meaning in an individual utterance, and it also contributes to the structuring and meaning of discourse.

This chapter outlines some of the ways in which prosody, and intonation in particular, serves to structure spoken texts, manage interaction, and convey pragmatic Cited by: 3.

In this essay, I compare and contrast grammatical model of intonation with discourse intonation model. I have selected the former model first because grammar and intonation historically have been considered close and inter-related (Coupler_Kohlen.

THE DISCOURSE FUNCTIONS OF INTONATION Intonation can signal to the listener what is to be taken as “new” information and what is already “given”. It can indicate when the speaker is indicating some sort of contrast or link with material in another tone unit.

Discourse intonation attempts to explain how intonation patterns in English affect the communicative value of speech, through the use of falling and rising tones along with changes in pitch.

The teaching of intonation seems to sit naturally with communicative language learning, but it is not an easy aspect of English to incorporate into the EFL.

Abstract Intonation, long thought to be a key to effectiveness in spoken language, is more and more commonly addressed in English language teaching through the use of speech visualization technology.
