From these studies, it is possible to model the fundamental frequency (F0) contours for sentences which exhibit a comprehensive range of linguistic communicative functions, and thus extend the understanding of the role of F0 from simple declarative sentences to a class which more nearly typifies the utterances found in nornsl discourse. Any attempt to characterize discourse-length utterances must account for these factors, and it is felt that the use of language functions within a speech act framework provides an insightful means to account for these F0 phenomena.
