                       14 - 16 November 2003

Diane Blakemore (University of Salford)

Guest speakers: Carlos Gussenhoven, Jill House, John Local, Deirdre

                      FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

The focus in research in prosody has recently moved from intonational
phonology to areas which interface with other domains, most notably
discourse and pragmatics. At the same time, research in pragmatics and
discourse has recognized a need to take account of prosodic
phenomena. In this way, it has become possible to identify a set of
phenomena where research in pragmatics feeds into research in prosody
and vice versa - for example, focus and information strucy"ure,
questions about processing units and the identification of an
utterance, the communication of attitudes and emotions, constraints on

The aim of this conference is to provide a forum in which researchers
from prosody and pragmatics can pool their research, and in this way
contribute to a fuller understanding of the role prosody plays in
pragmatic interpretation.

We invite abstracts for papers (30 mins + 10 mins
discussion). Abstracts will be chosen both for the inherent quality of
the particular prosodic/pragmatic analyses they offer and their
potential contribution to the development of the interface between
prosody and pragmatics.

A selection of papers from the conference will be published in a
Special Issue of The Journal of Pragmatics (eds. Anne Wichmann & Diane
