1st Symposium on Intonation and Tone in the Spanish-speaking World

Spanish, and the languages that coexist with Spanish, present exciting opportunities for research in prosody. The languages in contact with Spanish may be typologically similar to Spanish from a prosodic standpoint (other intonation languages) but may also be radically different (languages with lexical tone). It is the goal of this Symposium to bring together researchers working on these diverse aspects of prosody found in parts of the world where Spanish is spoken to share their ideas, methods and findings.

Areas: phonetics, phonology, typology and interfaces with other linguistic subfields (morphology, syntax, semantics/pragmatics, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics/language contact, acquisition etc.)

Keynote talks:
José Ignacio Hualde (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
John Kingston (UMass-Amherst)

Abstracts for posters and oral presentations should be no longer than one page (12 pt). A second page may be used for references and/or figures.
