Today, I did a search on the tag
tone because I wanted to see if anyone had asked questions regarding the tone of a written passage. Instead, and rightly so, I saw some questions dealing with vocal tone in languages where intonation plays an important role such as Chinese. How do we deal with this on Linguistics or how has it been dealt with on other SE sites?
If there is another term I should be searching for my definition of tone, please tell me so I can learn something. I don't think I meant sentiment but rather tone which goes beyond sentiment.
