In this episode Pauline gives some examples of commonly-used reassuring sentences, taken from Thompson's 'Intonation in Practice'. We look at where the rise and fall occur. Listen to Pauline and repeat slowly. Secondly Pauline gives some examples of how we contradict people, either by disagreeing or correcting them. The intonation pattern is different so listen carefully and repeat. Email for copies of PDFs, for more info or to book an Elocution lesson -
