Abstract:

The syntactic literature offers different question types, one of which is the
wh-question. There are languages, including Persian, in which the wh-phrase is
not required to move to sentence-initial position in order to form a
wh-question. It has been shown that prosody contributes to the production and
perception of the contrast between declarativity and interrogativity, notably
in interrogative utterances lacking lexico-syntactic features of
interrogativity. Accordingly, it may be proposed that prosody plays a role in
encoding and decoding wh-in-situ questions in which the interrogativity
feature (the wh-phrase) does not move to sentence-initial position, as, for
example, in Persian. The role of prosodic correlates in marking different
parts of wh-in-situ questions as opposed to declaratives is, however, an
understudied research area in Persian prosody. Further understudied topics
include the role of prosodic correlates in the identification of wh-in-situ
questions before the occurrence of the wh-phrase. This dissertation focuses on
a series of experiments on the production and perception of wh-in-situ
questions in standard Persian.
