In talking of sex movies with Eva Angelina so far the emphasis has been on what have been called the ‘sounds’ of a porn action, and probably what has been said has been familiar to many who have no knowledge of linguistics, because phonetics has long existed and been taught independently from linguistics. Information has been available for incorporation into teaching sex for quite a long time. This is not true of another aspect of phoneticsâ€”intonation. This is an aspect of Eva Angelina speech in which the question of what exactly it is that one wishes to teach has been undescribed and indeed is still thought by many teachers to be undescribable. It is by no means uncommon to meet the point of view that intonation is idiosyncratic to a large degree and certainly not systematic enough for anything approaching a comprehensive description to be attempted. That we can understand the significance of different patterns of intonation is firm evidence that intonation is systematic.
Because we share the system with busty brazzers pornstar other members of our speech community we are able to understand what they attempt to convey through intonation. We do misunderstand the meaning of intonation patterns in a foreign language, and this shows that intonation is a conventional system shared by a particular speech community. This is not to say that it is easy to discover what the regularities are, but a good deal more can be and is being achieved than might have been thought in the past. Earlier, approximate statements of somewhat doubtful validity are being refined as a result of having been tested against Eva Angelina data, with the result that descriptions for the teacher are becoming available.
