Meeting Description:

CLLI 2008 is pleased to host 3 specialist workshops for researchers and students
alike. They will deal with the ICE Jamaica project, Creole Prosodies and
Portuguese-lexified Creoles

Workshop 1: Introducing ICE Jamaica: Descriptive and Comparative Approaches to
Standard Jamaican English (Lars Hinrichs)

The Jamaican component of the International Corpus of English (ICE Jamaica), a
cooperation between the teams of Hubert Devonish (UWI, Mona) and Christian Mair
(University of Freiburg), is nearing completion, and will soon be available to
the linguistic community. The goals of this workshop are: 1) to introduce the
Jamaican component of ICE Jamaica to students of Caribbean linguistics, and 2)
to familiarise participants to practical aspects of the analysis of linguistic
corpora through hands-on exercises. Dates and times to be confirmed. Workshop
space is limited. Please contact us at clli2008 (a) uwimona.edu.jm to indicate
your interest and reserve a place.

Workshop 2: Prosody in Creole Languages: Acoustic Analyses and Typology (Shelome
Gooden et al)

The role of prosody in the formation of creole languages and the classifying of
their prosodic systems is a relatively unexplored area of research. We know that
there are creoles which have lexical tone, stress or a combination of both, but
it is not clear how these features are distributed among the varieties since
there are very few prosodic analyses available. The main goal of the workshop is
to stimulate new research that includes acoustic-phonetic analyses and
phonological data in order to shed light on the precise nature of the prosodic
systems of Caribbean creoles. This will have the effect of broadening the number
of analyses of prosodies of these languages as well as our understanding of the
prosodic systems cross-linguistically. Dates and times to be confirmed. Workshop
space is limited. Please contact us at clli2008 (a) uwimona.edu.jm to indicate
your interest and reserve a place.

Workshop 3: Portuguese-lexified Creole Languages: Exploring the Papiamentu-Cape
Verde Connections (Marlyse Baptista)

Researchers and students of Romance Creoles will be interested in this workshop.
More information to follow.

Dates and times to be confirmed. Workshop space is limited.

reserve a place.
