Meeting Description: ‘Accents’ is an annual conference organized by the Department of English Language and Applied Linguistics at the University of Łódź, Poland. It brings together researchers and teachers interested in native and non-native accents of English, approached from a variety of theoretical and/or practical perspectives. Among issues discussed each year, the characteristics and the dynamism of accent usage come into the foreground, with a strong interest in the methodology and tools for accent studies. While we hope to continue the discussion of characteristics, variability and function of phonetic / pronunciation features in natural as well as in formal teaching contexts, the focus of 2013 meeting is on prosody and ways of handling spoken data.
