August 16-20 2020
University of Southern Denmark (SDU) - Campus Sønderborg
1st International Conference on TONE AND INTONATION (TAI)
"Tone and Intonation in a globalized, digital world"
TAI 2020 welcomes contributions on all phonological, phonetic, and typological aspects of tone and intonation in any language. In addition, in TAI 2020 a number of sessions will be dedicated to globalization and digitalization.
Globalization poses increasing challenges to both, societies and individuals i terms of language contact and language acquisition.
Digitalization opens up new ways of human-human and human-machine interaction. In both contexts, tone and intonation are special linguistic, technical and didactic hurdles. Their better understanding not only has the potential for deeper insights into the nature of speech communication, but can also decisively shape the communication of tomorrow.
