Abstract

This paper presents some preliminary data from a study which investigates the intonation patterns of Malay speakers of English (MSEs).The study examines the MSEs’ intonation using Brazil’s [4] Discourse Intonation (DI) approach as the main method of analysis, with a view to modifying DI for this variety in view of how meaning is conveyed and understood. The spoken discourse of MSEs collected using a map task is examined, where conversations are between MSEs and MSEs as well as MSEs with a Chinese Non-Native Speaker (NNS) of English.
