The word "start"—including the question mark—rises up or comes up in your voice when you utter the word, Author: Richard Nordquist.

The objectives of this book are to emphasize the importance of intonation within the discourse domain and to draw upon research to suggest ways of teaching discourse-based intonation to second language (L2) learners.

This book is organized in three parts. The first provides an overview of linguistic theories on prosodic : Debra M. Hardison. In linguistics, intonation is variation in spoken pitch when used, not for distinguishing words as sememes (a concept known as tone), but, rather, for a range of other functions such as indicating the attitudes and emotions of the speaker, signalling the difference between statements and questions, and between different types of questions, focusing attention on important elements of the spoken Entity (decimal): &#;​&#.

Mark up your text. Make markings on the text that show where your pitch should rise and fall. You can draw arrows above the words or use lines—whatever works for you. Exaggerate. Practice your intonation by exaggerating it, which means making it much bigger than it should be.

For example, when your pitch is supposed to go up, go really high. Discourse Intonation in L2: From Theory and Research to Practice. Dorothy M. Chun.

In this chapter, we present a model for the analysis and synthesis of intonation in spontaneous conversations in Swedish. The model is an enhanced version of the model developed in () and implemented in our text-to-speech synthesis.

In our recent work we have developed the model from the perspective of discourse and multi-sentence by: discourse and phonology and that when these three levels meet, the point of encounter has added significance.

Earlier in the book, they state “We, however, see intonation as the carrier of context-specific, speaker-created meanings, which cross-cut the semantics of the language system” (p).
