Pitch is also useful for content differentiation -- as in the following sentences (the CAPS letter could be differentiated in amplitude, but typically the pitch would rise as well): You gave him THAT? You gave HIM that? You GAVE him that? YOU gave him that? There are plenty of other (and better) examples, but that was the best I could come up with quickly. Rebecca Mercuri.
