Meeting Description: 

International Workshop on Intonational Phrasing in Romance and in Germanic 

The interest in describing intonation has steadily grown during the last
decades. It has resulted in the development of important methodological tools
within the  so-called Autosegmental-Metrical Model of intonational phonology,
which constitutes the theoretical basis of the workshop.

Intonation is an area where Phonology and Syntax intersect. The goal is to
precisely scrutinize this intersection or interface. With that purpose, the
topic of the workshop will be phrasing. It is envisaged that the workshop covers
phrasing from two angles. On the one hand, we intend to discuss the various cues
for phrasing (such as pauses, resetting, the realization of pitch accents at
phrase edges, and F0 in general; lengthening and shortening, increase or
decrease of intensity etc.), and to state their role in the interpretation of
phrasing. Based on a comparison between Romance and Germanic languages, our
intention is to discuss whether these cues have different weight depending on
the language or the language group. 

On the other hand, the aim is to reflect on the interaction between intonational
and syntactic phrasing. There is a certain correspondence and there are clear
mismatches (e.g. certain eurhythmic effects override syntactic cues). We want to
elucidate the determining factors and the constraints of this interaction.
Although the objective is to analyze different types of data, we would like to
encourage facing the challenge posed by the analysis of spontaneous data, as the
focus in the last decades has been to study data based on reading.
