Meeting Description:

After the two successful Workshops on Tone and Intonation (1 & 2) held at IIT Guwahati and EFLU Hyderabad respectively, the third workshop on tone and intonation will be held at IIT Guwahati from 7-8 January 2016. The focus of this workshop is on tone and intonation, aspects of speech which are crucial for language and communication.

In this workshop we aim to focus on the languages spoken in Northeast India (Tibeto-Burman, Indic and Munda languages) and we seek to give a platform to researchers working on tone and intonation of the languages of Northeast India from descriptive, theoretical or experimental perspectives. However, it is not intended to restrict the scope of the workshop to these languages only. Prosodic aspects of any language may be presented in the workshop.
