Abstract

The aim of this dissertation is to examine whether the well-known O'Connor and Arnold model for the analysis of English intonation can be applied to the analysis of Luxembourgish intonation. After defining the concepts of intonation as applied in this dissertation, the main points of several other important studies on English intonation are discussed. This is followed by a detailed explanation of why the O'Connor and Arnold model was deemed most appropriate and an overview of the main work on Luxembourgish intonation published to date. The methodology of the research is outlined in detail, and the research findings are discussed in depth. The adaptability of the O'Connor and Arnold model to the analysis of Luxembourgish intonation is discussed, and possible alterations are suggested.
