Variable Perception and Production Correlates for Word Stress in First Language Acquisition and Child Second Language Learning

Abstract submission deadline: August 8, 2017
Notification of acceptance: September 1, 2017

This workshop focuses on the role of word stress in monolingual and bilingual language acquisition, from both a perception and production perspective. It aims to bring together phoneticians, phonologists and psycholinguists that are interested in the acquisition of prosody and its interaction with other domains of language learning. We will discuss the roles of acoustic and articulatory cues of word stress for learning one or more languages during early childhood. We encourage submissions of work in these fields focussing on topics like:
• universal and language-specific acoustic cues for word stress and their use in acquisition processes
• articulatory correlates of word stress used by young children and the differences to adult productions
• word stress in bilingual acquisition
• interaction of word stress with other linguistic phenomena, e.g. intonation
• implications for language learning and for grammar (e.g., bootstrapping mechanisms, acoustic and articulatory cues for a model of grammar)
