Sample text

In terms of intonation structure, his mother’s turn in line 7 can be described as an incomplete IP, because it does not have a Tonic: as the transcription shows, there is a slight fall, but it does not get lower than a high‐mid point in her pitch range. As discussed in the previous section of this chapter, mid‐pitch routinely projects that there is more talk to come in the IP, so the TCU is not complete. Unlike his mother, Robin does not break off his turn in line 6: [fafə] forms a complete IP, its pitch reaching the base of his range.

How to deal with the interactional issues presented by the occurrence of overlapping talk, in the ways that are conventional for the language and culture into which they are born, is therefore something that children have to learn. Prosodic features, including intonation, provide a resource for this. The remainder of the present chapter will describe some ways in which intonation is used to manage overlap. In Chapter 7, we will revisit overlap in order to explore the opportunities it provides for the young child to discover how the intonation system works.

This second IP starts high in the speakers’ range. As in the previous examples, there is no pause between the IPs. The pitch then descends rapidly, clearly marking a TRP. Thus, in each of these four turns, Robin’s mother uses features of pitch and rhythm to ensure that she gets into a second turn constructional unit without interruption. In terms of the traffic lights, these features override the occurrence of the Tonic that marks the first IP, which would otherwise signal a yellow light – as has been shown in the transcript to this point.
