Speech Prosody in Interaction: The form and function of intonation in human communication

Project description

Insights into human communication

Intonation is vital to communication. There is, however, a lack of agreement about the essential aspects of its structure and meaning. Addressing this, the EU-funded SPRINT project aims to shed light on the form and function of intonation by focussing on several phenomena across four linguistic varieties. Examining intonation form, SPRINT will look at the sources and extent of its variability; regarding function, it aims to create a model of intonational pragmatics based on pragmatic theory and knowledge on the form of intonation. The project’s work will have an impact on the understanding of speech communication.
