Meeting Description:

Workshop on Experimental Prosody Research

State-of-the-art tutorials on methods in prosody research:
- Data gathering
- Data treatment
- Data analysis

Speakers:
D. Robert Ladd (University of Edinburgh)
Bert Remijsen (Universiteit Leiden)
Carlos Gussenhoven (Katholieke Universiteit Nijmegen)
Aoju Chen (Katholieke Universiteit Nijmegen)
Stefan Baumann (Universit├Ąt des Saarlands)

The PhD program ''Universality and diversity: Linguistic structures
and processes'' and the research program ''Linguistic foundations of
cognitive science: Linguistic and conceptual knowledge'' are jointly
organizing a workshop on ''Experimental Prosody Research'' to be held
at the University of Leipzig. The invited speakers will give
state-of-the-art tutorials on methods in prosody research.

Contributions will deal with:

Data gathering: experimental designs in prosody research, subjects'
specifics (e.g., gender, trained vs. untrained speakers, pitch range
and variability), materials (e.g., use of context, syllables
vs. phrases as analysed units), procedure (e.g., randomisation of
materials, recording techniques, perception tasks, instruction of
subjects)

Data treatment: dependent variables (e.g., duration; discrete F0
values, F0 maxima, F0 means etc.), (logarithmic) scaling, validity
(e.g., artefacts, outliers, missing values)

Data analysis and discussion: visualization of the results (e.g.,
graphs, annotation, transcription), statistics (e.g., parametric
vs. non-parametric tests), interpretation of the results (e.g.,
neutral vs. contrastive accentuation, local vs. global effects)


Confirmed speakers:

D. Robert Ladd (University of Edinburgh)
Bert Remijsen (Universiteit Leiden)
Carlos Gussenhoven (Katholieke Universiteit Nijmegen)
Aoju Chen (Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics Nijmegen)
Stefan Baumann (Universit├Ąt des Saarlands)
