The study develops a fundamental methodology for analytically capturing the phenomenon of intonational variance and is based on a large, empirically-derived set of data. The study creates a solid foundation for the continuing research and description of intonational systems in German, drawing upon the most modern tools of phonological research. The work includes an audio CD with a large corpus of speech recordings, which imparts a better understanding of all the hypotheses of this pioneering work.
