Project Details


In this project, we develop a concept for what teaching materials in prosody for young speakers of Danish, Swedish and Norwegian could look like. We develop exemplary teaching materials for the intonation (speech melodies), stress patterns and other prosodic information that supports speech comprehension. The project aims to promote the Nordic languages and cultures by describing their intonation systems; by presenting an outline for suitable teaching materials; and by publishing scientific articles about the prosodic patterns in these languages and about pedagogical approaches to the teaching of these patterns.
