Meeting Description:

'La Perception des Accents du Français hors de France/The Perception of Regional Variation in French Spoken outside of France' Avignon (France), 17-18 November 2011

Call for Papers:

During this conference, we will attempt to put into perspective the findings of several domains (psycholinguistic, sociophonetics, cognitive sociolinguistics, perceptual dialectology, automatic speech processing) implicated in the identification of the accents of French spoken outside of France.

We encourage presentations dealing with the following topics:

- Contributions made by the perception of varieties of French outside of France toward the modelling of perception/speech production (especially usage-based models)
- The role of linguistic and non-linguistic factors in the perception of linguistic variation within the Francophone world
- Cognitive prototypes and cultural stereotypes in the perception of accents
- The degree of intercomprehension among the varieties of French
- Dialectometric approaches (the distance perceived between two or more dialects)
- Automatic recognition of accents
- Automatic processing of accented speech
- Issues related to the perception of accents in French-language teaching in the Francophone world.

Experimental approaches are especially welcome.

Instructions for submitting proposals

- The conference will host oral and poster presentations.
- Proposals should be sent as a .doc or .rtf file to the following address before April 30 2011: anika.falkertuniv-avignon.fr.

- The abstract should mention explicitly the given area(s) into which the work best fits: psycholinguistics, sociophonetics, cognitive sociolinguistics, perceptual dialectology, automatic speech processing.
