Speech Prosody 2024

Tuesday 2 July 2024 - Friday 5 July 2024
Cleveringaplaats 1
2311 BD Leiden

We are delighted to announce that Speech Prosody 2024 will be held in Leiden, The Netherlands (2 – 5 July 2024). The conference aims to showcase the facets of prosodic variation and their role in the production, comprehension, and acquisition of speech in order to obtain a better understanding of the structure and function of prosody.

The theme includes four subthemes:

  • Prosody through the lifespan
  • Typology and cross-linguistic variation
  • Individual and social variation
  • Contact-induced variation

The conference will include both thematic sessions, based on the above subthemes, and non-thematic sessions. We also invite proposals for special sessions, workshops, and tutorials.

We welcome submissions on any aspect of prosody in language. Contributions relating to the conference themes, and particularly, submissions by junior researchers, on under-studied languages, and/or with interdisciplinary research methods, are strongly encouraged.

SP2024 is jointly organised by the Centre for Language Studies (CLS) at Radboud University, the Institute for Language Sciences (ILS) at Utrecht University and the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL).
