The idea of organizing this collection of seven papers was twofold. First, to bring together, in a single volume, researchers who not only have devoted their work to analyzing prosodic form and content according to rigorous experimental protocols, and further more crucially, to bring together researchers who assume a modeling approach by proposing phonetic or phonological models for utterance implementation. Second, to present evidence for universal and language-specific prosodic properties by gathering information on common and specific prosodic properties from five languages, not all genetic-related: (American and Irish) English, Japanese, French, Finnish, and Brazilian Portuguese.
