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.
