Prosody is the part of language that determines how we say what we say. By manipulating timing, prominence, and intonation, we separate constituents from one another and indicate ways in which constituents are related to one another. Prosody enables us to emphasize certain parts of an utterance, and to signal whether the utterance is an assertion or a question (...) This chapter demonstrates how sign languages organize a range of available articulators.
