Meeting Description:

The Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS will host a mini-conference on metrical structure, its acquisition, and its use in language processing. The conference aims to give an overview of experimental and theoretical work on knowledge of metrical structure, with emphasis on its acquisition and its role in language processing. The results of a five-year research project on the use of metrical cues in speech segmentation will be presented, as well as seminal work in the field.

Invited Speakers:

Eugene Buckley (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia)
Anne Cutler (University of Western Sydney)
Barış Kabak (University of Würzburg) (tbc)

Marina Nespor (SISSA, Trieste)
Sharon Peperkamp (Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique, Paris)
