Meeting Description:

Prosody plays a fundamental role in L2 interactions, because it conveys linguistic, paralinguistic and sociocultural meanings that may be different from L2 speakers' native languages, and that L2 speakers may be unaware of. L2 prosody has been the object of growing interest in the recent years. However, the number of studies on L2 prosody is rather limited when compared to the amount of work that has been carried out on L2 segmentals. In addition, the study of L2 prosody is made rather fragmentary by the number of different theoretical perspectives, as well as the variety of objectives and research methods used to approach it.

The aim of the Methods in L2 Prosody (ML2P) workshop is to bring together researchers working on L2 prosody to discuss topics related to the following areas:

Experimental methods
Insights offered by different types of data (acoustic, articulatory, perceptual)
Learning processes and theoretical frameworks

Call for Papers:

Submission of abstracts is invited on any topic related to methods or analysis of L2 prosody in any language. Special consideration will be given to studies on L2s produced by Italian L1 speakers.

Abstracts should not exceed 1000 words and should be sent electronically as an anonymous document by 30 March 2012. Further details will be announced in the workshop website:


All abstracts will be blind-reviewed by the Scientific Committee.

The official languages of the workshop will be English and Italian.

Papers, to be submitted in English, will be published in the online conference proceedings.
