Product Description


'Bolinger has undertaken to integrate the themes of four decades' work into a coherent, consistent whole ... Its major stated purpose is to give non-linguists a serious introduction to how intonation works in English; this, writesBolinger in his preface, 'is too important a subject to be left just to linguists.' In keeping with this goal, the book is written in a readable, non-technical style - though one would have expected pleasing prose from Bolinger inany case ... The widespread acceptance of certain of Bolinger's view has meant that they have in some way been taken from a larger context that he would like us not to lose sight of. Intonation and Its Parts is a clear and comprehensive statement of that overall theoretical vision.' D. Robert Ladd, Language
