Workshop on Romance ToBI
Satellite workshop PaPI 2011
Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona) | June 23, 2011
The purpose of this workshop, which will take place in conjunction with the
conference Phonetics and Phonology in Iberia 2011 (PaPI 2011), is to
advance in the development of a common transcription system for Romance
languages within the Tones and Break Indices (ToBI) framework.
The workshop will have the format of a series of presentations for each of
the Romance languages represented in the workshop (Catalan, French,
Friulian, Italian, Occitan, Portuguese, Romanian, Sardinian, and Spanish). The basic intonational contours will be shown for each language (and dialectal
varieties where needed). Importantly, both the methodology (role-play
interviews) and the database is common to all eight languages.
