Hi,

I have a few questions regarding the prosody element in the SSML version 1.0 specification.

  1.. The pitch attribute seems to imply the intonation or inflection of a given phrase.  Is this correct?  If so, how does it handle intonation over a long phrase?  Is the pitch handled constant for the whole phrase or does it vary within?
  2.. It seems that the pitch contour is used to control varying the pitch within a given phrase.  Is this correct?
  3.. What exactly is the range attribute for?  The specification gives very little information about this attribute.
  4.. I would like to use the prosody element to denote simple linguistic inflections (intonations).  Is this possible with the defined attributes?  If so, can you provide an example of the parameters.
Thank you for your time.
