Meeting Description:

Workshop on Prosodic Interface Relations
University of Stuttgart
GK 'Linguistic Representations and their Interpretation'

In the last few decades, language research has been characterized by an
increasing interest in the role of prosodic information. Examining the
suprasegmental properties of speech may be prerequisite for shaping theoretical
accounts on the syntax-phonology interface as well as for modeling underlying
processes in language comprehension and production. In order to discuss these
topics from different angles, the workshop is intended to bring together
researchers from different fields, such as phonetics, phonology, semantics,
computational linguistics and language processing. In particular, the following
questions will be addressed:

What are the linguistic factors that determine the prosodic representation of a

How do refinements in syntactic and semantic theory affect prosodic models (and
vice versa)?

How does discourse-structural information contribute to the generation of
prosodic structure?

How does prosody affect the on-line interpretation of spoken sentences?

How do prosodic phrasing and accentuation interact?

Is there a systematic relation between performance factors and linguistically
determined phrasing positions in language production? If so, how is perception

How does prosody influence language acquisition?

Invited Speakers:
Kai Alter (Newcastle University)
Sasha Calhoun (University of Edinburgh)
Aoju Chen (Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen)
Caroline Féry (University of Potsdam)
Martine Grice (University of Cologne)
Giuseppina Rota (University of Pisa)
Mark Steedman (University of Edinburgh)

Participation is free. However, interested participants are required to register
