 Public Speaking A - Z, Rules and Usage of Inflection
Inflection or slide of the voice indicates the tendency or direction of a speaker's mind.
When a sentence is in the nature of an appeal, it takes a general rising inflection throughout its delivery, and the key of the voice is usually more or less high in pitch; but in sad and solemn appeals the pitch of the inflection is always low.
• Inasmuch as a falling inflection always suggests to the mind a certain degree of completeness of meaning, it may be usefully employed in those sentences which consist of several clauses, conveying imperfect sense, and independ ent of each other's meaning, for the purpose of keeping the several clauses separate and distinct from each other.

An inflectional affix adds a particular grammatical function to a word without changing the category of that word, or even leading to a different word.
Traditionally inflection is distinguished from derivation (the second type of major morphological operation).
Although it is not possible to draw a sharp border between both types of operation, there are at least two differences: (i) inflection is never category changing, while derivation typically is category changing, and (ii) inflection is usually peripheral to derivation.
