  • Information Structure


The Information Structure Research Group will discuss topics based on the research interests of participants, providing an opportunity to present and discuss ongoing information structure related research. Central themes of the information structure research group include the role of context in information structure interpretation, the annotation of information structure in corpora, the interaction of information structure with prosody, the role of syntax as well as the role of information structure for processing. Besides reading and discussing current papers on information structure together, our meetings provide a platform to informally discuss our own experimental studies, methodological issues, as well as practice talks in which information structure features prominently.
