Meeting Description:

Prosodic constructions are recurring temporal patterns of prosodic activity that express specific meanings and functions. These typically involve not only pitch contours but also energy, rate, timing and articulation properties, and may involve synchronized contributions by two participants.

Call for Papers:

Call deadline: October 15, 2014

We invite empirical, methodological, and theoretical contributions from any approach: conversation analysis, experimental, statistical, modeling, and others. We welcome, for example: work detailing the form and function of any specific prosodic construction; cross-linguistic studies; multi-modal investigations, work on the nature, utility, and limitations of construction-based approaches to dialog prosody; and work on how the realizations of prosodic constructions vary, for example, with other factors affecting prosodic form, with temporal and cognitive limitations that constrain speakers, with individual speakers, and with multiple simultaneous goals, whether coherent or misaligned.
