Workshop to be held in Paris on 14-15 May 2020
Organizing committee: Agnès Celle, Université de Paris & Maud Pélissier, University of Agder
*Call for Papers*
This workshop aims to bring together linguists working on non-canonical questions at the syntax-pragmatics-prosody interface. Studies that provide experimental evidence of emotions in non-canonical questions as well as typological approaches to the prosodic encoding of information structure are particularly welcome.
One of the goals of the workshop is to investigate the relationship between the prosodic and syntactic features of non-canonical questions, especially those expressing surprise in comparison with rhetorical questions and exclamation. We invite submissions addressing this question in French, English, German, Finno-Ugric languages as well as in other typologically different languages, but also more generally the interface between prosody and syntax in expressive and questioning speech acts.
*Submission guidelines and important dates*
*Abstract proposals: 2-page abstracts including references for 30-minute presentations*
*Deadline for abstract submission: January 15*
