Final Call

3rd SWIP - Swiss Workshop on Prosody
with one special session on PhonoGenres and Speaking Styles
10-11 September 2014 - University of Geneva


The SWIP (Swiss Workshop on Prosody) is an annual meeting gathering
researchers in the field of prosody. After Zurich in 2012, and
Neuchâtel in 2013, the 3rd SWIP will take place in Geneva on
10-11 September 2014. For this edition, the special theme is
PhonoGenres and Speaking Styles. By this event we mark the end
of the three year FNS research project "Prosodic and linguistic
characterisation of speaking styles: semi-automatic approach and

Phonostylistic prosodic variation, whether regional, social or
situational, is the object of a growing number of studies. They are
systematic or isolated, based on phonetic-phonological studies of
large-scale corpora or on the examination of narrow samples. Approaches
vary between systematic methodologies and ad hoc procedures. Thus, one
of the major goals of the conference is to index different approaches
and to confront their results.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

*PhonoGenres: phonetic-prosodic dimensions; situational, regional,
communicative, macro- or micro-social variations; comparative analysis
*speaker-specific behavior: cliché, idiosyncrasy, distinctive features
*diachronic speaking style variation
*identification of discourse genres and styles
*methodologies and tools for corpus processing of speech in general,
and especially those developed to process the speaking style variation
