Book: Prosody in Practice

Chapter: The Case for Prosody: A Neglected Variable no More

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.40469


The final chapter reflects on the earlier content of the book and underscores the consequential significance of prosody in typical and non-typical speech types, and across a range of communicative situations. It assembles the argument that reference to prosodic organisation is indispensable if we wish to advance our analyses and understanding of human interaction.
