Interests: phonation; tone; White Hmong
The last decade has seen a surge in research on phonation (voice quality) (e.g., Berkson, 2019; Esposito & Khan, 2012; Garellek, Ritchart, and Kuang, 2016; Keating, Garellek, and Kreiman 2015; Tian and Kuang 2019; see Esposito and Khan, 2020 for references) and prosody (intonation and rhythm) (e.g., Das and Mahanta, 2019; Elfner, 2015; Féry and Fanselow, 2020; Frota and Prieto, 2015; Jun, 2014; among countless others). As these two fields are inherently linked, the questions, hypotheses, findings, and interpretations of one directly affect those of the other. The goal of this Special Issue is to highlight work on the interaction between phonation and prosody. The focus includes but is not restricted to topics such as the following:
- Interaction between intonation and phonation;
- Relationship between lexical tone and phonation;
- Acoustic description of prosody and phonation in an underdocumented language;
- Perceptual work on prosodic features and phonation;
- Acoustic description of a phonological register system.
We request that, prior to submitting a manuscript, interested authors initially submit a proposed title and an abstract of 400–600 words summarizing their intended contribution. This should be sent to the Guest Editors (Christina Esposito ([email protected]) and Sameer ud Dowla Khan ([email protected]) or to the Languages Editorial Office ([email protected]). Abstracts will be reviewed by the Guest Editors for the purposes of ensuring proper fit within the scope of the Special Issue. Full manuscripts will undergo double-blind peer-review.
The tentative completion schedule is as follows:
- Abstract submission deadline: 1 December 2020
- Notification of abstract acceptance: 15 January 2021
- Full manuscript deadline: 15 April 2021
