      In German, however, especially in read speech, paragraph finality is often marked by an H+L* L-% nuclear contour, which coincides with one of the intonation patterns tested in the experiment. Thus, S. Baumann, M. Grice / Journal of Pragmatics 38 () – 13 We have already pointed out that in German only the argument receives an. This paper reports the results of two identical experiments, one in Hindi and one in Indian English, that elicited semi-spontaneous sentences containing a focused agent or a focused patient. The primary aim of the experiments was to investigate the prosodic correlates of information structure in the two languages and to explain these correlates with a phonological model.

    Transcendent objects have only a "quasi-givenness" (35) but when their existence is bracketed they can be brought, as phenomena, to the immanence of consciousness and are then characterized by "absolute givenness" (35) or, better, "absolute self-givenness" (6, 7, 28, 40, 41) which is constituted by "pure evidence" [i.e., Evidenz] (6, 40). A striking property of Georgian intonation is that focused postverbal material is prosodically separated from the core clause. The challenge of the present study is to assess the external validity of this experimental result by means of a corpus study. Corpus data is known to contain immense variability due to uncontrolled factors related to spontaneous speech production, such as segmental.

    This article is a follow-up study of Féry and Kügler ( Pitch accent scaling on given, new and focused constituents in German. Journal of Phonetics, 36, –).It reports on an experiment of the F0 height of potential pitch accents in the postfocal region of German sentences and addresses in this way an aspect of the influence of information structure on the intonation of sentences. Intonation Intonation will be discussed within what is now known as the “autosegmental-metrical” (AM, a term coined by Ladd, ) theory of intonation (Pierrehumbert, ), and annotated using the German Tones and Break Indices (GToBI) system (Grice & Baumann, ).

Description: This book addresses students and researchers of phonetics/phonology, and the semantics and pragmatics of discourse. It employs an autosegmental-metrical model of intonation to investigate the marking of aspects of information structure, concentrating on the Given-New dimension.

The empirical evidence provided here is based on German. The empirical evidence provided here is based on German. It comprises the analysis of a read corpus and two perception experiments which show that the dichotomy of 'accented' versus 'uncaccented' corresponding to 'New' versus 'Given' information is inadequate.

The study shows that the two speech acts are differentiated by many prosodic means, both globally (duration, intonation contour) and locally (accent distribution in the clause-initial and clause-final regions; pitch, duration, intensity on various elements in the clause, especially the subject pronoun and the direct object, which are more.

After a neutral question (4), a valid answer would be prosodically characterized by a rise in pitch on the subject, followed by high plateau and a fall in pitch preceding the referent.

• There is no clear mapping between information status and accent type in German. • Target models in acquisition research should be determined from spontaneous speech.

After that, he was a researcher at the Institute of Phonetics, Saarland University, where he finished his PhD in Besides project-related research on intonational phonology, annotation systems (GToBI) and emotive speech synthesis, he wrote his PhD dissertation on the prosodic marking of givenness in German.

German intonation in autosegmental-metrical phonology. Studies of children’s use of intonation in reference are few in number but are diverse in terms of theoretical frameworks and intonational parameters.

In the current review, I present a re-analysis of the referents in each study, using a three-dimension approach (i.e., referential givenness-newness, relational givenness-newness, contrast), discuss the use of intonation at two levels.

Tübingen: Max Niemeyer Verlag. Baumann, Stefan & Martine Grice   The intonation of accessibility. The paper is structured as follows: Section 2 defines givenness (or information status) as a nuanced cognitive notion, which – in intonation languages like German and English – is to a large extent expressed prosodically.

It is shown that not only presence or absence of an accent but also the type of an accent as well as its position in an.
