This book focuses on the description and analysis of the "prosodic" features of speech, including length, accent and stress, tone, and intonation. Fox identifies criteria for defining these features and examines the features in depth from a variety of theoretical perspectives. Throughout, he emphasizes the relationships and interdependencies between the different features and their place in the overall structure and organization of utterances.
