Example text

3. Tench (1996: 2–3) also separates the attitudinal functions as the “paralinguistic dimension” of intonation from all the other functions, which together constitute the “linguistic dimension” of intonation in his system. 3. The assumption that the intonational distinctions of cognitive meaning and thematic meaning are grammatical functions is uncontrovertible. 9 There are several facts that lend support to this view. First, it is likely that the communicative sentence types themselves derive from general, ancient attitude types and that they still carry some inherent attitude.

Bolinger (1978, 1989: 26–66). Since the attitudinal functions of intonation are closer to the unintentional signalling of physiological states (Bolinger 1989: 194–214), it seems reasonable to assume that they are older than the grammatical functions. That is to say, in the beginning intonation was natural and attitudinal, but due to the influence of the conventional devices of language, intonation itself became more and more conventional and its grammatical functions gradually emerged (Péter 1961: 134).

This contour goes up and down in the syllable when realized in a monosyllabic utterance (9)a, but the falling part may be physically missing especially if the syllable is short or ends in a voiceless consonant. When the rise–fall has two syllables to spread over, as in (9)b, the pitch steps up between the syllables and then slides back down in the second syllable. When there are more than two syllables at its disposal, the melody rises until it reaches the penultimate syllable and then drops abruptly between the penultimate and the last syllables (9)c.
