Meeting Description:

1st International Conference on Tone and Intonation (TAI) 2021
''Tone and Intonation in a globalized, digital world''
6-9 December 2021, Sonderborg, Denmark

The 1st edition of the Tone-and-Intonation (TAI) conference series is proudly hosted by the Centre for Industrial Electronics (CIE) at the University of Southern Denmark. Being a merger of the two former conference series TAL (Tonal Aspects of Languages) and TIE (Tone and Intonation in Europe), TAI 2021 welcomes contributions on phonetic and phonological analyses of prosody including (but not limited to) topics related to the production and perception of prosody and rhythm, the semantics and pragmatics of prosody, the acquisition and teaching of prosody in L1 and L2, and cross-linguistic comparisons of prosody.

In addition, in TAI 2021 two separate special sessions will be dedicated to the challenges and opportunities that globalization and digitization hold for the speech sciences. In this context, we also encourage researchers of neighboring disciplines to submit papers related to tone and intonation to the conference.

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the organizing committee decided to conduct the conference in the form of a HYBRID CONFERENCE combining a live in person event with a virtual component.
