Our publications embrace the following disciplines: Experimental Phonetics, Speech pathology, Speech sciences. The group was formed in 2002 aiming at promoting experimental prosody research, by means of activities such as teaching, working papers presentations, participation in speech sciences’ conferences.

Nowadays the group works in six main areas:

  1. Speech rhythm and intonation analysis
  2. Speech rhythm and intonation modelling
