Meeting Description: 

Japanese dialects, many of which are currently endangered, display a wide  
variety of accent systems.  ISAT (International Symposium on Accent and  
Tone) is a forum for descriptive and theoretical research  on these accent  
systems in comparison with those of accent and tone languages all over the  
world. ISAT is financially supported by a collaborative research grant from the  
National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics (NINJAL), titled  
'Phonological Characteristics of the Japanese Lexicon'.

ISAT will be held once a year, addressing certain themes each year. The  main 
themes of ISAT 2010 are:
(1) Typology of prosodic systems
(2) Prosodic systems of endangered languages and dialects
