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