About the book
This volume contains articles based on the presentations given at the Nordic Prosody XII conference, which was held at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Trondheim, Norway) in August 2016. The contributors investigate various prosodic aspects, including intonation, rhythm, speaking rate, intensity, and breathing, using approaches ranging from phonetic and phonological analysis to speech technology methods. While most of the studies examine read speech, some of them explore the prosodics of spontaneous speech. The languages that receive most attention are Norwegian, Swedish and Icelandic as well as Estonian, Latgalian and Polish. In addition to the larger Nordic languages, several papers focus on regional languages spoken in these areas.

This means that occasionally a word might be bifurcated by this marker.
Number twelve in the series of Nordic Prosody conferences took place in August 2016 and was hosted by the Department of Language and Literature at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). It was the third time the conference was organized in Trondheim.
Ever since the first meeting in Lund in 1978 the conference has attracted researchers from the areas of phonetics and phonology, with presentations on a range of themes and languages, and using different methodologies. This increasing variation is also witnessed by the present proceedings.
A selection of sixteen papers presented at Nordic Prosody XII in Trondheim appear in a revised form in the present volume. In spite of the relatively small number of contributions, the themes cover a wide range of issues including both linguistic and instrumental-phonetic analyses of intonation, rhythm, speaking rate, intensity, and breathing phenomena in read and spontaneous speech. Apart from languages like Icelandic, Norwegian, Swedish and Polish, also regional languages like Finland Swedish, Estonian Swedish and Latgalian are represented in this volume. Included in the proceedings is the written version of the talk given by the nestor of Norwegian intonation research and plenary speaker Thorstein Fretheim.
We gratefully acknowledge financial support for the conference and for the publication of the proceedings provided by the Norwegian Research Council (NFR) and the Faculty of Humanities of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim.
The next Nordic Prosody conference in 2020 will be the second time it is organized in Denmark. The conference will be hosted by the University of Southern Denmark and will take place in Sønderborg.
