Meeting Description: 

The International Conference on Tone and Intonation will be held at
the Santorini Image Hotel in Massaria (Santorini, Greece), 9-11
September 2004. The conference is the closing event of a three-year
scientific exchange programme funded by the European Science
Foundation as the Network 'Tone and Intonation in Europe' (TIE). The
aim of the network has been to stimulate and coordinate research on
the prosody of European languages and language varieties, with special
emphasis on languages that feature lexical tone. The workshops have
been devoted to tonogenesis, experimental procedures, and typology,
and have attempted to embed the discussion of the European languages
in a global typological perspective.

The conference intends to close off the Network programme in the same
spirit, and will thus include contributions dealing with European as
well as non-European languages. While there will be a preference for
papers on the interaction between intonation and lexical tone,
typologically, historically and psycholinguistically oriented work,
including brain imaging research, on either tone or intonation is
