Meeting URL: http://www.prosico2009.com

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Meeting Description:

Iconicity has been the focus of considerable attention since the beginning of
the twentieth century. It has been demonstrated that every aspect of language
can be affected by the principles of iconicity.

The University of Rouen will be rescheduling the International Conference on
Prosody and Iconicity, which was originally scheduled in October 2008, on 9-10
April 2009.

Plenary Speakers:
Antoine Auchlin, University of Geneva
John Ohala, University of Berkeley;
Anne Wichmann, University of Central Lancashire.

The purpose of the conference is to shed new light on the interrelation between
prosody and iconicity by enlarging the number of parameters traditionally
considered and by confronting various theoretical backgrounds.

The parameters taken into account may include but are not limited to the following:

Socio-linguistics and socio-phonetics
Speech situation and context;
Attitudes and emotions;
Gestures and multimodality;
Domains interaction (prosody, syntax, pragmatics, etc.)

A special interest will be given to the presentation and the comparison of
different theoretical perspectives such as Information Structure theory, Grice's
theory, Relevance theory, grammaticalization theory, Gussenhoven's biological
codes, prosodic modelling, etc.

Conference Languages: English and French

Conference website: www.prosico2009.com

Registration will start on January 5, 2009 till February 5, 2009.
