International Conference on Tone and Intonation TIE2018


The Department of Languages and Literatures at the University of Gothenburg is hosting this year's edition of the Tone and Intonation Conference, 11-13 October.

TIE2018 continues the tradition of the biennial international TIE conference series on Tone and Intonation. We welcome contributions on topics related to the linguistic aspects of tone and intonation in any language, including, but not limited to:

  • phonetics
  • phonology
  • psycholinguistics
  • neurolinguistics
  • diachronic issues
  • typological issues
  • intonation in other modalities
  • the interface between tone/intonation and grammatical structure or information structure
  • the interaction of tone and intonation with each other and with other aspects of prosody

For TIE2018, we are particularly interested in promoting research that showcases:

  • typological research on tone and intonation, in particular investigations of tone and intonation in understudied languages.
