This volume contains detailed surveys of the intonational phonology of fourteen typologically diverse languages, described in the Autosegmental-Metrical framework. Unlike the first volume, half of the languages are understudied languages and/or researched through fieldwork, and all vary widely in their word prosody as well as their geographic distribution. Each chapter provides the prosodic structure and intonational categories of the language as well as a description of focus prosody. The book also includes a chapter on the methodology of studying intonation from data collection to analysis, as well as a chapter on prosidic typology which proposes a new way of characterizing the intonation of the world's languages. The sound files accompaning the descriptions are available on the book's companion website.
