Meeting Description:

This workshop on the Prosody-Syntax Interface, organized by the ZAS and the
University of Potsdam, will be held at the ZAS in Berlin on 13-14 June 2008. It
is intended as an informal follow-up to a workshop on the same theme held at UCL
in October 2006. The goal of the workshop is to present cutting edge research by
international scholars who investigate the interface from a variety of
theoretical perspectives in a diverse range of languages and language families
(Germanic, Romance, Farsi, Bantu, Japanese, Sign Language) in a forum that
allows ample opportunity for exchange and discussion. While the workshop
presenters are all invited speakers, the workshop is open to the public. There
is no registration fee, but interested participants are requested to register
online to help us with our planning.
