Accent is one of the most multi-faceted and enigmatic notions in phonology. It may interact with virtually every aspect of segmental and suprasegmental phonology (although with surprising restrictions of directionality), and still remains phonetically elusive. The goal of this workshop is to explore formal theoretical tools which bring us closer to match this challenge.
