Aix Summer School on Prosody 2016: 

Methods in Prosody and Intonation Research: Data, Theories, Transcription

Laboratoire de Parole et Langage, Aix-Marseille Université, CNRS, France.

September 6-9, 2016

We are pleased to announce the Aix Summer School on Prosody 2016 to be held from September 6-9, 2016 in Aix-en-Provence (France).


The Aix Summer School on Prosody 2016 will bring together experts on theoretical and practical aspects of the research on prosody. The school will be organized around morning lectures and afternoon tutorials (where participants will practice concepts and skills discussed in lectures) and data clinics (where participants can bring together their own data and questions for discussion).


The school is intended for post-graduate students and researchers interested in all the theoretical and practical aspects of the research on prosody and intonation. The school will be suitable both for researchers already working on intonation and prosody, and wishing to learn more about specific topics, and for researchers who wish to better understand how to incorporate and control prosody in their own work.

Topics will include (but not limited to): theoretical models on prosody and intonation; perception of intonation; prosody and language pathologies; prosody, semantics, and discourse; prosody and L2; prosody and neurolinguistics; transcription of intonation and prosody; statistical methods in prosody research; and preparation of stimuli for perception studies.


The confirmed invited speakers are:

  • Amalia Arvaniti (Kent University): Theoretical models of prosody
  • Mariapaola  D'Imperio (Aix-Marseille Université - IUF): Experimental protocols for prosody and perception
  • Laura Dilley (Michigan State University): Prosody and perception methods
  • Janet Fletcher (The University of Melbourne): Transcription of under-described languages
  • James Sneed German (Aix-Marseille Université): Prosody and discourse

  • Oliver Niebuhr (University of Southern Denmark): Prosody and experimental methods in acoustics
  • Bert Remeijsen and Otto Gwado Ayoker (University of Edimburgh): Typology and field methods in prosody research: Shilluk prosody workshop
