INTONATION   声の抑揚、イントネーション

  • intonation とは、話すときに声が上下する調子、つまり、声の抑揚、イントネーションのことです。



  1. You're pronouncing all the words correctly, but you need to work on your intonation.
  2. Intonation affects the meaning of a sentence in English much more than it does in Japanese.
  3. (teacher to student)
    Your voice should rise at the end of a yes/no question. You tend to use a falling intonation.
