WithMarianne Lind
Pages 18

In this chapter, we analyze the use and function of pitch variation in utterances by a participant with a non-fluent (Broca) type of aphasia in spontaneous verbal interaction. The analysis is focused around the following topics: (a) the use of prosody to contextualize direct reported speech, (b) the use of prosody to contextualize single-word utterances as requests and responses, respectively, and (c) the use of prosody to demarcate functional-grammatical units within longer contributions.
