Categories and gradience in intonation: evidence from linguistics and neurobiology

Brechtje Post, Francis Nolan, Emmanuel Stamatakis, Toby Hudson

Multiple cues interact to signal multiple functions in intonation simultaneously, which makes intonation notoriously complex to analyze. The Autosegmental-Metrical model for intonation analysis has proved to be an excellent vehicle for separating the components, but evidence for the phonetics/phonology dichotomy on which it hinges has proved elusive. Advocating a multidisciplinary approach, this paper outlines a new research project which combines traditional behavioural experiments with neuro-linguistic data to advance our understanding of the linguistic representation and neural correlates of intonation.
