The authors of this book share a common interest in the following topics: the importance of corpora compilation for the empirical study of human language; the importance of pragmatic categories such as emotion, attitude, illocution and information structure in linguistic theory; and a passionate belief in the central role of prosody for the analysis of speech. Four distinct sections (spoken corpora compilation; spoken corpora annotation; prosody; and syntax and information structure) give the book the structure in which the authors present innovative methodologies that focus on the compilation of third generation spoken corpora; multilevel spoken corpora annotation and its functions; and additionally a debate is initiated about the reference unit in the study of spoken language via information structure. The book is accompanied by a web site with a rich array of audio/video files. The web site can be found at the following address: DOI: 10.1075/scl.61.media

“This is a very rich collection of papers by very eminent scholars, which makes a comprehensive, unified statement about spoken corpus study and its essential contribution to our perception of language per se. This cutting-edge research of spoken language does not lean on commonly accepted notions and theories, but sets off to show what can be learned from spoken corpora in establishing new strategies by novel thinking. The volume includes chapters in several sections, starting with corpus compilation and corpus structure, going through corpus annotation and empirical work, dealing with the exploitation of corpora for core linguistic domains, and finally getting to other linguistic, sociolinguistic and paralinguistic domains. This volume should – and hopefully will – serve as an impetus to an enhanced phase in the study of spoken languages and language in general.”
