Call For Papers

We are delighted to invite submissions of abstracts for oral or poster presentations related to the workshop theme of the processing of prosody across languages and varieties.

There will be an award for Best Student Paper at the workshop, sponsored by the Association for Laboratory Phonology


Themes include, but are not limited to, cross-linguistic and cross-varietal commonalities and differences in:

  • the role of prosody in signalling information structure, particularly in the activation and resolution of contrast and contrastive alternatives
  • the integration of prosody and morphosyntactic cues in speech comprehension, e.g. as cues to information structure
  • the role of prosody in the management and interpretation of discourse
  • prosodic structure as an organisational frame in speech production or perception
  • links between prosodic structure and multimodal speech cues such as gesture
