                  Analysis, Modelling and Technology
                              edited by
                           Antonis Botinis
      University of Skövde, Sweden, and University of Athens, Greece

The volume Intonation: Analysis, Modelling and Technology covers the main
aspects of intonation, written by international researchers in the field.
Following the Introduction, fourteen chapters are organised into five
thematic sections: Overview of Intonation, Prominence and Focus, Boundaries
and Discourse, Intonation Modelling and Intonation Technology.

Each chapter is basically autonomous within a thematic section, but the
subject of several chapters extends over more than one thematic section.
The combination of a wide range of research areas, as well as
interdisciplinary approaches in the study of intonation, makes this volume
a unique contribution to the international scientific community.

Basic knowledge of Intonation and Prosody is assumed in the context of
linguistic and computational backgrounds. Readers may range from students
of advanced undergraduate to postgraduate and research levels as well as
individual researchers within a variety of disciplines such as Experimental
Phonetics, General and Computational Linguistics, Computer Science, and
SpeechLanguage Engineering.
