Abstract: Intonation of Peninsular Spanish in Spontaneous Speech: melodic patterns and dispersion margins. In this study, we present the results of our research on the intonation of spontaneous speech in Peninsular Spanish, done at the Laboratory of Applied Phonetics (Universidad de Barcelona). We start from a corpus of over six hours of recordings, with a total of 57 anonymous informants and 136 enunciations, which had already been classified according to the method of melodic analysis of speech (AMH) as developed in our center. The aim of this study was to determine and establish the melodic patterns of our corpus (the most frequent intonational contours, as types of variants of Spanish tonemes) and their margins of dispersion. We found a total of 15 melodic patterns: the pattern of a neutral intonation, 4 variants of interrogative intonation, 3 variants of suspended intonation and 7 variants of emphatic intonation. These patterns can be used as models of reliable intonation, both in the teaching of Spanish as well as in synthesis and speech recognition.
