      ABSTRACT = {In this paper we investigate the intonation of yes-no questions in Bari Italian across two speech styles. We compare the intonation of tokens produced in task-oriented dialogues with those read aloud, both from sentence-lists and from paragraph-length texts in which the target question was integrated. Results show that although all questions have a rising pitch accent, L+H* (already shown to be the marker of interrogation in Bari Italian by Grice and Savino 1995), they differ in their phrase-final F0 contour. A final rise to a high endpoint was found in 78% of read but only in 13% of spontaneous tokens. These data indicate that care should be taken when extending results from reading intonation to that of spontaneous speech.},
