When published in 1986, this book was the first to survey intonation in all its aspects, both in English and universally. In this updated edition, while the basic descriptive facts of the form and use of intonation are presented in the British nuclear tone tradition, there is nevertheless extensive comparison with other theoretical frameworks, in particular with the ToBI framework, which has become widespread in the United States. The author has expanded the sections on historical background, different theoretical approaches and sociolinguistic variation. Intonation remains a basic reference book for linguists, phoneticians, speech therapists and all those concerned with speech in any way.
