Meeting Description:

A 1.5-day workshop titled 'The Prosodic Hierarchy in a Typological Perspective' will be held at Stockholm University, Department of Swedish Language and Multilingualism, (Södra Husen, hus D, room D389), on March 14–15, 2014.

The workshop begins at 13.00 on Friday March 14.

We will discuss issues relating to the definitions of the categories in the prosodic hierarchy, as well as how these categories interact with e.g. syntax and information structure. We are happy to announce the following invited speakers:

Daniel Büring (Syntactic embedding and prosodic recursion)
Laura Downing & Maxwell Kadenge (Motivating Prosodic Stems in Shona)
Emily Elfner (The status of intermediate phrases in Connemara Irish)
Caroline Féry (Sentence Prosody: Align or Match?)
Chris Golston (Prosodic Movement)
Fatima Hamlaoui & Kriszta Szendrői (A flexible approach to the syntax-phonology mapping of intonation phrases: Evidence from Bàsàa and Hungarian)
Sam Hellmuth (Prosodic boundary marking as disjunction)
Shinichiro Ishihara (On Match constraints)
Marina Vigário (What are prosodic constituents and recursive domains?)

In the evening of March 14 we will have dinner together.

Participation in the workshop is free (but we will need to ask for 300 SEK for participation in the dinner).

If you would like to join us, please send an email to sara.myrbergsu.se no later than March 3.
