      "Language has traditionally been considered a function so advanced that it sets the human race apart from our animal counterparts. But prosody—the melody of language—does not lag far behind in making us unique as well.

      Prosody is a tool of human expression that is conveyed acoustically by way of durational, intensity, and frequency cues. To these conventional cues, one could add linearity (e.g., abrupt vs. smooth changes in pitch, loudness, or duration) as a possible fourth dimension."
