Title: Punjabi Intonation: An Experimental Study
Written By: Chander Shekhar Singh
URL: http://bit.ly/UeP6rS
Series Title: LINCOM Language Research 08
Description:

The concept of intonation covers a remarkably wide domain, embracing aspects of the speech technology, speech pathology and language teaching. These are the domains where intonation or its analysis has a crucial role. The present study demonstrates clearly the different aspects of intonation in Punjabi language by taking into consideration the three types of sentences- declarative, imperative and interrogative.

What is new about this work is that it not only includes the acoustic parameters to measure intonation patterns in Punjabi language but also provides the phonological assumptions of intonation in the language. This study implicates that any research on intonation patterns should obtain evidence through instrumental investigation and statistical processing for the refinement of the results. This work maintains a scientific approach, i.e., investigation and asks other investigators to perform new operations on intonation. Seen in this light, the present work is an attempt to connect the phonetics and phonology in a way that experimental phoneticians propagate the theoretical assumptions and implications of their work, and that phonologists deal with empirical methods for cultivating evidences.
