|Title:||Please – from courtesy to appeal: the role of intonation in the expression of attitudinal meaning|
|Institution:||University of Central Lancashire|
|Linguistic Field:||Phonology; Semantics; Sociolinguistics|
|Abstract:||Intonation is known to convey many nuances of meaning, both emotional and attitudinal, but a way of explaining how these meanings arise has so far remained elusive. While some emotions may have direct correlates in a speaker's voice, such correlates are harder to find for attitudinal meanings.
