Pilar Prieto Vives

Research interests

Pilar Prieto is an ICREA Research Professor at the Department of Translation and Language Sciences at UPF (Universitat Pompeu Fabra), Barcelona, Catalunya. After obtaining a PhD in Romance Linguistics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, she was postdoctoral fellow at Bell Laboratories (Murray Hill, New Jersey). Since 2008, she is the coordinator of the "Group of Prosodic Studies" at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Her main research interests focus on the description of how melody and prosody works in language and how it interacts with other types of linguistic knowledge (pragmatics, syntax), as well as on the role of prosody and facial and manual gestures in the expression of linguistic meaning in normal interactions. She is also interested in how babies acquire sounds and melody together with grammar, and how these components integrate in the process of language acquisition.
