Title: Where Prosody Meets Pragmatics
Edited By: Dagmar Barth-Weingarten

Series Title: Studies in Pragmatics volume 8
Description:

This volume demonstrates the synergies that can result from
interdisciplinary collaboration. Responding to the growing interest in the
interface between prosody and pragmatics, it presents a collection of
papers which use different approaches and data to explore a wide range of
interrelated issues in both fields. The volume contains a state-of-the-art
introduction by the editors, and individual chapters organised in three
sections. In the first section, chapters by Sasha Calhoun, Joe Blythe,
Merle Horne and Phoenix Lam examine prosodic cues to referential and
discourse/textual meaning. The second section is devoted to the role played
by prosody in the negotiation of speaker change in conversational
interaction, with papers by Dagmar Barth-Weingarten, Jill House, Emina
Kurtic/Guy J. Brown/Bill Wells and Beatrice Szczepek Reed. In the final
section, chapters by Leendert Plug, Elizabeth Couper-Kuhlen and
Anne-Catherine Simon/Liesbeth Degand focus on various aspects of
interpersonal meaning and how they are conveyed. Languages discussed are
English, Dutch, German, Swedish, French and Murriny Patha, and the
frameworks used include Conversation Analysis, Gricean pragmatics,
Interactional Linguistics, Intonational Phonology, Phonology for
Conversation and Relevance Theory.
