Meeting Description: 3rd SWIP - Swiss Workshop on Prosody
Special theme: PhonoGenres and Speaking Styles
10-11 September 2014 - University of Geneva

The SWIP (Swiss Workshop on Prosody) is an annual meeting gathering researchers in the field of prosody. After Zurich in 2012, and Neuchâtel in 2013, the 3rd SWIP will take place in Geneva on 10-11 September 2014. For this edition, the special theme is PhonoGenres and Speaking Styles. By this event we mark the end of the three year FNS research project ‘Prosodic and Linguistic Characterisation of Speaking Styles: Semi-automatic Approach and Applications’.

Phonostylistic prosodic variation, whether regional, social or situational, is the object of a growing number of studies. They are systematic or isolated, based on phonetic-phonological studies of large-scale corpora or on the examination of narrow samples. Approaches vary between systematic methodologies and ad hoc procedures. Thus, one of the major goals of the conference is to index different approaches and to confront their results.
