Workshop on Prosodic Development
Universitat Pompeu Fabra | April 16th, 2010
The Workshop on Prosodic Development will be hosted by the Universitat Pompeu Fabra on April 16th, 2010.
The main goal of this one-day workshop is to discuss different aspects of the children’s prosodic development in different languages. The project members will present the results of two recent projects related to “Rhythmic and Intonational Development in Catalan, English, and Spanish”, financed both by the Generalitat de Catalunya (Batista i Roca projects) and by the British Academy. Invited speakers will present their work on a variety of aspects related to phonological development.
Discussions will address specific questions regarding the influence of language-specific distributional and frequency properties on language development and also the influence of general production and perception constraints. One of the goals will be to try to bridge the gap between perception and production studies in prosodic development.
We are grateful to the UPF's Departament de Traducció i Ciències del Llenguatge for their financial support of this workshop.
