Title: Contrastive intonation and its disguises of syntactic structure in Italian
Authors: Lonzi, Lidia
Issue Date: 2004
Publisher: Padova, Unipress
Abstract: The aim of this paper is twofold; namely, to resume recent analyses that have pointed out some peculiar “disguises” of syntactic structure created by contrastive intonation, in order to characterize it in as detailed and general a manner as possible; to clarify and, if necessary, to revise, two interwoven notions – marked intonation vs. contrastive – that we should systematically keep distinct. To my knowledge, these two notions overlap only in the case of sentences with initial NF, where, according to the authors above, marked intonation should be uniquely associated with contrastive interpretation.
