2012 (English)In: Proceedings of Fonetik 2012, Gothenburg, Sweden, 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
We describe some aspects of prosodic variation in the Spontal corpus of 120 half-hour spontaneous dialogues in Swedish. Coding and annotation of question typology is described and results are presented concerning prosodic correlates related to question type for well over 400 questions. A prosodically salient distinction was found between the two categories termed, in our typology, forward- and backward-looking questions.
