It offers a detailed prosodic analysis of six types of parentheticals - full parenthetical clauses, non-restrictive relative clauses, nominal appositions, comment clauses, reporting verbs, and question tags, all taken from the spoken part of the British Component of the International Corpus of English. To date, the common assumption is that, by default, parentheticals are prosodically phrased separately, an assumption which, as this study shows, is not always in line with the predictions made by current prosodic theory. The present study provides new empirical evidence for the prosodic phrasing of parentheticals in spontaneous and semi-spontaneous spoken English, and offers new implications for a theory of linguistic interfaces.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:issn>978-0-521-76192-5</bibo:issn> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Dehé, Nicole</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2014-07-07T13:48:26Z</dc:date> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2014-07-07T13:48:26Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Dehé, Nicole</dc:creator> <dc:publisher>Cambridge [u.a.] : Cambridge University Press</dc:publisher> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>Parentheticals in Spoken English : The Syntax-Prosody Relation</dcterms:title> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
