Meeting Description:

Starting out from the (not entirely uncontroversial) assumption that information-structural categories are universal and definable in abstract interpretive terms, this workshop aims at bringing together researchers interested in the prosodic manifestation of information-structural categories within different languages and across languages, including both cross-linguistic comparisons as well as language contact situations of various kinds (L2, FL, Heritage languages).

Invited Speakers:

- Sasha Calhoun (Victoria University of Wellington)
- Elisabeth Delais-Roussarie (LLF CNRS, Université Paris Diderot)
- Caroline Féry (Goethe-Universität Frankfurt)
- Sophie Repp (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin)Language Acquisition, Phonetics, Phonology, Pragmatics, Semantics
