Meeting Description:

This workshop aims to discuss issues on the interaction of
prosody, syntax, and information structure, from an
interdisciplinary point of view. All the speakers of this
workshop have recently been working on relevant issues,
especially looking at the phenomena related to the intonation of
focus and (wh-)questions in Japanese.

From this specific topic, we hope to extend the discussion to
some other potentially related phenomena, as well as to other
languages. With that goal in mind, we welcome researchers
interested in any area of prosody, syntax, and information
structure to attend the workshop and join the discussion.

This workshop is held as a continuation of the one held last year
at Indiana University. For more information about the previous
workshop, please visit the WPSI 1 website:

WPSI 2 is funded by Project A1 of the SFB 632 'Information
Structure'.
