Call for Papers:

NINJAL ICPP 2018 features the following two main topics:

     (a) sokuon, or geminate consonants  
     (b) accent, tone, and intonation

Your abstract must involve at least one of the two main topics. If it does, any presentation is welcome even if your presentation is not concerned with Japanese.  Abstracts on the interface between lexical accent/tone and intonation will be particularly welcome.

Oral presentations will be by invitation only. We will not be accepting abstracts for oral presentations.
