|Title:||Modeling individual variation in prosody: the case of Spanish Clitic Left-Dislocations|
|Length:||Abstract 2 pages + Poster 1 page + Slides 11 pages|
|Abstract:||This paper deals with individual differences in the prosodic phrasing of clitic left-dislocations (CLLDs) in embedded and non-embedded clauses of Spanish. It proposes an stochastic optimality-theoretic analysis of the attested inter-speaker variation. This variation, which previously has been typically ignored or attributed to performance, is considered to be a part of the linguistic competence.
The submission consists of three parts:
b) Poster (presented at The Fifth Conference on Tone and Intonation in Europe (TIE5), Oxford, UK, September 2012)
c) Slides of a talk (held at the 'Syntax-Phonology Interface from a Cross-linguistic Perspective', ZAS, Berlin, November 2012)
Comment: Poster and slides deal with exactly the same topic. However, the slides are more detailed and thus present the analysis in greater detail.
