Product description


'My reaction on reading this book was simply 'wow'. Only Paul Warren has the experience and expertise to write a volume such as this, and he has done an amazing and thorough job.' David Britain, Universität Bern, Switzerland

'This is an authoritative scholarly treatment of intonational uptalk. Warren presents a masterly overview of the social implications, origins, geographical spread, and controversies surrounding this widespread phenomenon in spoken interaction.' Janet Fletcher, University of Melbourne

'… it is certain to become the standard reference on the topic … there is no point in going anywhere else to find out what has been said about uptalk - either by researchers or by journalists and lay commentators …' D. Robert Ladd, Journal of the International Phonetic Association

Book Description

This first comprehensive analysis of 'uptalk' examines its historical origins, geographical spread and social influences. Warren also looks at the media's coverage of the phenomenon, including the tension between the public's perception and the views of experts. Uptalk will be welcomed by anyone interested in the way we talk today.
