Meeting Description:

An International conference on the Typology of Tone and Intonation (TTI) will be
held at the ZAS, Berlin, Germany, from 7-9 September 2006 organized by the ZAS
(Project P7) and SFB 632 (Project D2; University of Potsdam)

The aim of the conference is to continue the tradition of the TIE network in
stimulating and coordinating cross-linguistic research on the grammatical role
of tone and intonation.

The conference welcomes papers on the following topics:

- Typology of tone systems and of intonation
- The interaction between intonation and lexical tone
- The interaction between segments and tone or intonation
- Tonogenesis and other issues in the history of tonal systems
- The interaction of tone and intonation with information structure
- Experimental phonetic or psycholinguistic studies of tone and intonation

Papers will be chosen by the organizing committee on the basis of abstracts
submitted. The final program is intended to represent a broad range of languages
and also a broad range of approaches to this topic: phonetics, phonology,
semantics, psycholinguistics, historical and comparative linguistics.

Invited speakers (confirmed): Dan Everett, Martine Grice, Carlos Gussenhoven,
Pilar Prieto, Annie Rialland, Yi Xu
