Anonymous:hello, i want an answer for the rising and falling intonation in a non complex manner please.
When do we use the rising tone and the falling tone?
2- Rising tone is used at the end of 'Yes/No' questions, while a falling tone is used at the end of 'Who/What/Where/When/Why/How' questions.
3- Tonal changes are used irregularly throughout speech to identify word groups set pace and stress, indicate emotion,etc.
