Investigating interfaces: an experimental approach to focus in Sicilian Italian

Raffaella Folli, Elinor Payne

This paper describes an investigation of the syntax-prosody interface in the expression of focus in Sicilian Italian. It finds evidence of a generalised reversal of the articulation of information structure, with new information often preceding old, and of intonational differentiation between focus types.
