TIPA 30 - Deadline Extended : March 20, 2014
TIPA: Travaux interdisciplinaires sur la parole et le langage
The 30th issue of the TIPA journal is to appear in December 2014, on the following topic: Prominences and Spoken Language
Invited editor: Sophie Herment, Laboratoire Parole et Langage, Aix-Marseille Université
Following the TIPA tradition, the 30th issue of the journal will gather interdisciplinary works on speech and language. Articles dealing with prominences and spoken language will be welcome.
We invite submissions based on various backgrounds and linguistic fields: prosody, phonetics, phonology, syntax, morphology, pragmatics, dialectology, diachrony.
The term prominence encompasses many different meanings which will hopefully be dealt with in the various contributions. In spoken language, prominences can range from emphasis, focalisation, pitch accents, metric entities such as strong syllables or strong feet, etc.
Articles dealing with interfaces will also be of great interest: how are syntactic prominences realized in the spoken language? How is information structure related to prominence? Are certain morphological constituents more prominent than others? etc.
Papers building on different perspectives will be considered: corpus-based approaches, theoretical linguistics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, automatic language processing, sociolinguistics, language teaching...
These aspects are by no means exhaustive, and all related issues or approaches that can shed light on the topic will be considered.
The language of publication will be either English or French. Each article should contain a detailed two-page abstract in the other language, in order to make papers in French more accessible to English-speaking readers, and vice versa, thus insuring a larger audience for all the articles.
