課程概述

介紹韻律系統相關理論、研究及應用。 

課程目標
This course intends to provide an overview of prosodic systems. Students will become familiar with both the theoretical background and the implementation of intonational phonology by being fluent in prosodic labeling systems based on autosegmental phonology on mainly English and Mandarin. Prerequisites for this course include a basic background in linguistics and phonetics. 
課程要求
Grading
Your final grade for this course will be based on the total number of points you accumulate during the semester. There will be NO curving. You will be evaluated according to the following criteria:
Participation 25%
Midterm 20%
Final 25%
Project 30%

Participation
This is a course that combines theory and practice. We will discuss various theoretical issues regarding prosodic frameworks and work together to train our ears in order to differentiate tunes of various languages. Please help me make this course successful by giving me your input both inside and outside the classroom.

Exams
There are two noncumulative exams in total. No make-up exams can be given except in the case of death in the family or dire documented medical emergencies. Any other reasons for a make-up exam would only be possible if prior consent from the instructor is obtained. Please view exams only as a way to help me assess how well we have been doing.

Course project
You are required to do a course project on a topic of interest that is related to speech prosody. There will be a presentation period at the end of the semester. Three milestones are set throughout the semester for the course project. On 11/23, you will give a brief oral overview of what you plan to do for your project. You will also need to provide a one-page abstract including research questions, methods, preliminary results, and references. On 12/21, you will be given a 20-min presentation time slot for an oral report. During this time, you are to defend the statistical analyses you choose and highlight whatever significant findings you have found in your study. You can use whatever media you please but the style of presentation should be formal. You will be graded on both your presentation skills and audience responses, in addition to the content. The written report is due on 12/28, Thursday, at 5:00p. 10% of the grades will be deducted for each late day. It should be no more than a 10-paged, double-spaced, polished report incorporating the comments you have gathered in the presentation. The report should follow a formal format, and should include appropriate graphs, statistical details, and adequate interpretations.

A note on collaboration
Students often find it helpful to form study groups with classmates to discuss the reading and exercises each week. The course instructor encourages such cooperative study habits. However, each student must work independently in writing up all homework assignments, lab, and the project report.
