AG 2 The relation between prosodic and referential structure

Building K1, room 11.42

Kurzbeschreibung / / short description

The workshop aims at broadening our view of the interaction between prosodic and referential structure. We want to discuss the following questions: (i) Which aspects determine the prosodic setup of referring expressions? (ii) What is the influence of the prosodic structure on the semantics of sentences? (iii) To what extent do we rely on prosodic information to understand discourse structure?
