Description

The paper proposes an intonational description which uses functional pitch contour elements relevant at the information structure (IS) level. A hierarchical view transforms utterances into hierarchies of communicative units (CUs) with own IS. The proposed intonational analysis consists in the utterance partitioning into information packaging units (CUs) and in applying functional labels to the CU constituents in order to describe the IS of all CUs within the utterance hierarchy.
