Meaning of Topic and Focus by Daniel Buring
Book DescriptionThis study provides an illuminating and ground-breaking account of the complex interaction of intonational phenomena, semantics and pragmatics. Based on examples from German and English, and centred on an analysis of the fall-rise intonation contour, a semantic interpretation for two different pitch accents - Focus and Topic - is developed. The cross-sentence, as well as the sentence internal semantic effects of these accents, follow from the given treatment. The account is based on Montogovian possible world semantics and Chomskian generative syntax.

Intonation and Meaning, Paperback (August 2016)
This book examines the interplay between prosody-stress, phrasing, and melody-and interpretation-felicity in discourse, inferences, and emphasis. It presents the main phenomena involved, and introduces current formal analyses of prosodic structure, relevant aspects of discourse structure, intonational meaning, and the relations between them.
