Intonation, rhythm, and the melody of language are among the first aspects of speech that infants attend to and produce themselves. What is more, in order to grasp the full literal and social meaning of an utterance, syntactic and semantic information is not enough - intonation and prosodic modulations must be taken into account. Yet, prosodic features are among the last to be mastered by both L1 and (adult) L2 learners both in utterance production and comprehension.
