PROSLI - Prosody for self-learning instruction Workshop at ICNAAM 26-27 September 2013, Rodos Palace Hotel, Rhodes, Greece http://www.icnaam.org/

Prosody addresses fundamental components of speech communication - such as intonation and rhythm - which must be mastered by language learners in order to understand and make themselves understood properly in the target language. Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) almost never incorporates such components. As a result, speech technologies for self-learning instructions (SLI) are unable to offer feedback to learners as to their prosodic skills. In most cases, prosody is made object of specific separate tools. The workshop will try to cover the whole spectrum of topics both theoretical and practical, that deal with prosody and self-learning instructions. It will include demonstration and state of the art of such tools, their effectiveness in self-learning contexts. It will address prosodic issues in language learning from both the analysis and the perception viewpoint and their accountability in real world applications. In particular, of interest to the workshop will also be ASR systems for languages like Chinese, which naturally incorporate tone level parameters in their language models; or like Japanese which need to account for durational differences at phonemic and subphonemic level.
