“Yeah, I guess sooooooo, uuuuuuh. I wish the first time it was done correctly.” ~Donald Trump, September 11th, Anniversary.
The Alt-Left is using this as evidence that Donald Trump supported the Iraq War. They are doing so precluding his personal testimony about his own perspective at that time and they are ignoring the Emotional Data that he communicated as he made this comment.
In linguistics, prosody (from Ancient Greek) is concerned with those elements of speech that are not individual phonetic segments (vowels and consonants) but are properties of syllables and larger units of speech. These contribute to linguistic functions such as intonation, tone, stress, and rhythm. Prosody may reflect various features of the speaker or the utterance: the emotional state of the speaker; the form of the utterance (statement, question, or command); the presence of irony or sarcasm; emphasis, contrast, and focus; or other elements of language that may not be encoded by grammar or by choice of vocabulary.
