Editor's Note: This is the second call for papers. The deadline of this call has been extended.
Revista Leitura, a peer-reviewed journal published by the Programa de Pós-Graduação em Letras e Línguística (PPGLL) / Universidade Federal de Alagoas (UFAL), is accepting submission of papers, essays, book reviews, and interviews for its 52nd issue, to be published in Oct. 2013.
The focus of this issue is prosody as an organizing principle for different aspects of spoken language. It aims at discussing specifically how different prosodic elements (such as those related to the variation of duration, intensity and fundamental frequency) are used to organize information in various communicative situations. Studies that deal with aspects related to the production and the perception of this phenomenon in different verbal productions will be considered for analysis. The submission of papers that deal with spontaneous speech is particularly encouraged.
Submission Deadline: 31-Aug-2013
Authors interested in publication should send their manuscripts as well as any questions to: revistaleiturayahoo.com.br.
