Title: Prosodic markers of information status

In the field of (cognitive) linguistics, there is a renewed interest in the question to what extent the form of linguistic expressions is a consequence of speaker-dependent or addressee-dependent factors. Basically, the underlying problem is whether speakers are mainly ?speak for themselves?, or whether they adapt their expressions to the needs and background of their addressees. To tackle this general problem, previous research has often looked at how speakers make lexical decisions. Instead, the current project aims to focus on prosodic variables, like intonation, loudness, and durational patterns. It has repeatedly been shown that such variables can be exploited as cues to important information in the discourse. In languages like Dutch and English, for instance, new or contrastive words are often claimed to be highlighted by pitch accents. However, there are still a number of open questions about the nature of the relation between information status and prosodic variables. Does the prosodic marking of discourse information primarily depend on what is important from a speaker or addressee perspective? Do speakers adapt their prosodic markers of discourse information to different kinds of addressees? Are there systematic differences between different types of speakers or different kinds of addressees in how they use prosody for marking informational importance?

The goal of this PhD project is to explore such questions experimentally by means of production and perception tests, using spontaneously elicited speech stimuli.
