In this paper we study the phonological manifestation of various intonational focus domains in Castilian Spanish. We propose that downstep is one of the intonational signallers of focus in this language. [...]

11 p, 108.8 KB Tonal structure and pitch targets in Italian focus constituents / D'Imperio, Mariapaola (Université de Provence)
This work investigates the tonal structure of the focal accent in narrow focus statements of Neapolitan Italian. The formal properties of this accent lend themselves to two competing analyses. Specifically, this accent could equally be described as a HL accentual fall or as a LH rise. [...]
Aquest article investiga l'estructura tonal de l'accent focal de les oracions declaratives amb focus estret en italià de Nàpols. Les propietats formals de l'accent focal es podrien en principi analitzar de dues maneres possibles, bé com un accent tonal HL de tipus descendent o bé com un accent tonal LH de tipus ascendent.

29 p, 190.3 KB The Spanish intonation of speakers of a Basque pitch-accent dialect / Elordieta, Gorka (Universidad del País Vasco. Departamento de Filología Española)
In this paper the main aspects of the intonation of broad focus declaratives in Lekeitio Spanish are described and analyzed. In this variety, accents are realized as pitch rises rather than falls, similarly to Standard Peninsular Spanish and unlike in Lekeitio Basque, the other native language of these speakers. [...]
Aquest article descriu i analitza els principals aspectes de l'entonació de les oracions declaratives de l'espanyol parlat a Lekeitio. En aquesta varietat, els accents tonals es realitzen com a moviments ascendents en lloc de descendents: en això s'apropen a la varietat estàndard d'espanyol peninsular i es distingeixen de l'altra seva llengua nativa, el basc parlat a Biscaia.

20 p, 283.1 KB The phonological status of initial peaks in European Portuguese* / Frota, Sonia (Universidade de Lisboa. DLGR & Laboratório de Fonética)
This paper investigates the phonology of initial peaks in European Portuguese intonation. Evidence is presented for two types of peaks: an accentual peak, that is consistently aligned relative to the first stressed syllable; and a phrasal peak, that is aligned relative to the left-edge of the intonational phrase and within the limits of the first prosodic word.

This paper approaches Romance intonation from a diachronic point of view. The position that is adopted is that this is an area open to investigation. Comparative techniques can be fruitfully employed for investigating the evolution and diversification of the intonational patterns of the Romance languages. [...]

This paper analyses the role of prosody in parenthetical insertions, a type of structure that is extremely common in both speech and writing. The materials under study come from a corpus of spontaneous speech acts in Central Catalan (with varying degrees of spontaneity) from which a corpus of oral parenthetical insertions has been compiled.

Our investigation focuses on several types of structural ambiguity in European Portuguese. The materials include sentences with set-divider adverbs ambiguous as to the direction of syntactic attachment, adjunct and complement PPs ambiguous as to the level of syntactic embedding, nonrestrictive clauses with local and non-local possible antecedents, and relative clauses ambiguous as to their restrictive/non-restrictive meaning.
