The Prosodic Marking of Discourse Functions

Louise Mycock and John Lowe


Link to pdf of paper

The prosodic marking of Discourse Functions such as Focus presents a challenge to theories that seek to model grammar in a modular way because distinct components of linguistic structure must be permitted to interact but they must be neither conflated nor assumed to be isomorphic. We present an account of prosodic Focus marking within the modular grammatical architecture of Lexical-Functional Grammar, building on the model of the syntax-prosody interface developed by Dalrymple and Mycock (2011).
