Biographical Note: Philippe Martin

Philippe Martin, with a PhD in Linguistics and another in Applied Sciences, always developed complementary research and teaching around his favorite topic: intonation, the music of the sentence. His teaching career took place essentially at the University of Toronto, with an interlude of few years spent at the Université de Provence (Aix-Marseille). He is presently professor of linguistics at the Université Denis Diderot - Paris 7, France.

To pursue his keen interest in intonation phonology, he developed many hardware and software devices to measure and analyze voice melody. Being the first user of these developments, he started to write about phonological description of French intonation back to 1975, and never stopped since then, extending his ideas to romance languages.

He lives in Toronto and Paris, and enjoys traveling and meeting friends and colleagues all over the world, especially Brazil.
