This volume contains the revised texts of the papers given at the ninth Nordic Prosody conference, held at Lund University, Sweden, in August 2004. The twenty-six contributions cover a wide range of aspects of Nordic prosody including not only Scandinavian languages and dialects--Danish, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish--but also of related languages: Estonian, Russian, and Orkney and Shetland dialects of English. The papers can be divided into the following themes: accentuation from phonetic or phonological starting-points, prosody from general linguistic perspectives, both grammar and pragmatics, prosody modelling for human--machine interaction, and other phonetic aspects of prosody including quantity.
