Speech Prosody is the study of intonation and related phenomena, including pitch, loudness, timing, speech rate, and voicing properties. Central topics include the melody and rhythm of speech and how these contribute to meaning at the word, utterance and discourse levels. These issues are of central importance in phonetics, phonology, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics and speech signal processing. Models of prosody are being applied to problems in speech synthesis, speech recognition, speech therapy, language teaching, dialog systems and many other fields.

The Speech Prosody Special Interest Group is dedicated to advancing the scientific study of speech prosody and its applications. As of 2018, the SIG has 1095 members from over 27 countries.
