The introductory chapter describes the collaborative efforts that led to the collection of articles included in the book, as well as the common features that guided all the chapters devoted to each of the Romance languages studied: a common methodology of data collection, the Discourse Completion Task procedure; a common framework of analysis, the Autosegmental Metrical model of intonational phonology; the collective goal of proposing ToBI analyses for each language and language variety that meet the necessary balance between language-specific phonological systems and cross-language comparison; a shared chapter structure. A summary of each individual chapter is also presented.
