Oxford Handbook of Language Prosody


International Edition

About the Book

This handbook presents detailed accounts of current research in all aspects of language prosody, written by leading experts from different disciplines. The last four decades have seen major theoretical and empirical breakthroughs in the field, many of them informed by interdisciplinary approaches, as reflected in this volume. Following an introductory section covering the fundamentals of language prosody research, Parts II and III trace out the position of prosody in linguistic structure and explore prosody in speech perception and production. Part IV provides overviews of prosodic systems across the world, with case studies from Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia and the Pacific, and the Americas. The chapters in Parts V, VI, and VII investigate prosody in communication, in language processing, and in language acquisition, while Part VIII examines prosody in technology and the arts. The volume's comprehensive coverage and multidisciplinary perspectives will make it an invaluable
resource for all researchers, students, and practitioners interested in prosody.
