I was just wondering, is there a verb for the use of uptalk (using an inflection at the end of a statement)? So, something like this:
I've been on several walks recentLY. (inflection at the end of a statement, as if it were a question) (Some would add a question mark after such a statement, to signal the stress, but this is non-standard and confusing except when the sentence is a declarative question.)
Is there a word to express the using of such a style? (i.e. a word that can fill this blank responding to the previous sentence:)
I've already got "sounding unsure of yourself" or "inflecting your sentences", but it doesn't sound brief (or good enough). When I searched online I couldn't find anything, I just found blogposts that were just trying to convey the message "stop being indecisive".
