The purpose of this paper is to analyze intonation of interrogatives in Russian and Italian. In prosodic terms, universal characteristic of questions is a high final pitch. This corresponds to the fact that questions have rising intonation whereas declaratives have falling intonation. And Hirst & Di Cristo(1998) argued that in many languages, including Russian, the intonation of wh-questions is described as being more similar to that of statements than that of yes-no questions. In this paper, I surveyed the intonation pattern of two types of interrogatives, yes-no questions and wh-questions, in Russian and Italian. At first, the two languages have different intonation pattern in yes-no questions. Russian has a final-falling tone, in other words, low boundary tone, while Italian has a final-rising tone, high boundary tone. On the other hand, Russian and Italian have a common intonation pattern of wh-questions, final-falling tone. In Russian, the intonation of declaratives and wh-questions has low boundary tone in unmarked context. What``s more, boundary tone of yes-no questions in Russian also has low tone. As a result, in Russian intonation patterns of interrogatives and declaritives have no difference but have same final falling tone. In Italian, there is a difference between yes-no questions and wh-questions. The intonation pattern of declaratives and wh-questions is low boundary tone in unmarked context. While the intonation pattern of yes-no questions is high boundary tone.
