Intonation of colloquial English (British English) has been written for language students at intermediate to advanced level and for 1st year university students of phonetics. The authors analyse the intonation of English into a system of ten tone groups which, with their functions, are described in the early chapters of the book. Then comes an extensive series of practice drills with each tone group treated separately and in certain common tone group sequences: the functions of each tone group are made evident by means of Verbal Contexts which precede the drill sentences. Finally there is a number of dialogues demonstrating the ten tone groups in action within the framework of everyday conversational speech.
