My name is Lei Sun and I am a PhD student at LUCL and LIBC under the supervision of Prof. dr. Niels Schiller and Prof. dr. Vincent van Heuven. I am interested in the interaction of prosody and information structure in tonal languages. My PhD project investigates how the way information is packaged is constrained by phonological structure of tonal languages and how different types of information structure notions are encoded with different prosodic cues in these languages and why. I will use acoustic, behavioral and prospectively eye-tracking methods to investigate these questions

Project: Sound and Meaning – How are prosody and information structure interacted in tonal languages
