So what is intonation in American English? What do Americans do? We go up and down staircases. We start high and end low.
Every time we want to stress a word or an idea, we just start a new staircase. That sounds simple enough, but when and where do you start a new staircase?
Statement Intonation with Nouns Intonation or pitch change is primarily used to introduce new information. This means that when you are making a statement for the first time, you will stress the nouns.
