Intonational Variation in Arabic

Conference URL:

The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers working on Arabic prosody and intonation, and together to explore the range of prosodic variation observed in spoken varieties of Arabic. Papers of a descriptive and/or theoretical nature are invited which treat the phonetics and/or phonology of suprasegmental phenomena in one or more Arabic varieties (or other related Afro-Asiatic languages). Papers treating the intonational phonology of spoken Arabic dialects will be particularly welcome and will be prioritised. The conference will include a special workshop session on the development of transcription systems for research on intonational variation in Arabic. Authors will be informed of the results of the reviewing process in early July.
