The intonational diversity of regional varieties provides a challenge to both traditional and autosegmental theories of intonation, which mostly derived from the study of national standard languages. The ten chapters in this book give an overview of current research covering regional varieties of English, German, Italian and Greek. While all contributions share a general autosegmental perspective, they represent different approaches and use different types of data ranging from experimental speech data to spontaneous conversational speech.
