Hi All,

Can any British Native speaker explain me the characteristics of Intonation in British English (Tone: rising and falling tone, Stress: Contrastive and new information stress) and how is it different from from American English and Australian Englsih and other regional English ?

Thanks a lot

This is a massive topic- if you want the answers to all of that, it would be advisable to get a book on the subject because you're talking about descriptions of variants and dialects and how we build meaning with intonation.
