During the last decade, extensive compilation of spontaneous speech corpora for several linguistic families has provided large amounts of data to linguistic research, often including the acoustic and prosodic dimension, which is fundamental for speech analysis.
Speech corpora, therefore, represent a strong enhancement for the development of linguistic theory in several and diversified domains. However, the notion of sentence as unit of reference for spoken language analysis turns out to be strongly limiting as well as inconsistent with the available data. Different paradigms point at various possible ways to identify structural properties of spoken language, including its unit of reference. Starting from direct comparison of empirical studies on several languages and linguistic families, the workshop intends to advance in the comprehension of the unit of reference for spontaneous speech and to profit from the discussion of the results of multiple theoretical approaches in order to define a common ground.
