Janet Grijzenhout, Monika Lindauer und Katharina Zahner

Building K2, 17.98

Kurzbeschreibung // short description

The workshop focuses on the role of word stress in monolingual and bilingual language acquisition and explores the roles of acoustic and articulatory cues of word stress for learning words, stress and sentence intonation in one or more languages during early childhood. It also considers the interaction of prosody with other linguistic domains during the language acquisition process.
