Linguistic Field(s): Phonetics; Phonology; Typology

Meeting Description:

The Between Stress and Tone conference will focus on the variety of
word-prosodic systems. Particular attention will be paid to systems that
challenge the typological classification into word stress, lexical pitch-accent
and tone. We will also invite studies that discuss the interaction between the
phonetic encoding of word-prosodic features and utterance-level prosody.

Dear Colleague,

Please find below the list of papers that will be presented at the Between
Stress and Tone conference (Leiden, 16-18 of June 2005). The 47 papers listed
below are in addition to the four invited papers - by Harry van der Hulst,
Jerold Edmondson, Jose Hualde and Larry Hyman.

More information on the event can be found on the conference website
[]. In case you want to attend, please
register online via the conference website.

A day-by-day schedule will be sent by email to the attendants before the conference.

Yours sincerely,
The organizing committee:
Amis Boersma
Vincent van Heuven
Bert Remijsen (convenor)
Marloes Rozing (project coordinator)
