We welcome papers on both phonetic and phonological analyses of prosody including (but not limited to) topics related to the perception and production of prosody, rhythm and intonation, prosody in speech synthesis and speech recognition, the semantics and pragmatics of prosody, the acquisition of prosody, and cross-linguistic comparisons of prosody.
