Proceedings of DiSS 2019
The 9th Workshop on Disfluency in Spontaneous Speech
Following the successes of the previously organized Disfluency in Spontaneous Speech (DiSS) workshops held in Berkeley (1999), Edinburgh (2001), Göteborg (2003), Aix-en-Provence (2005), Tokyo (2010), Stockholm (2013), Edinburgh (2015) and Stockholm (2017), the organizers are proud to present DiSS 2019, held at the ELTE Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary, in September 2019. This year, as before, we have many different approaches to disfluencies. Papers are presented in the field of both fundamental and applied research. A special feature of the 2019 event is the co-located special day focusing on (dis)fluencies in children’s speech. The organizers would like to extend their thanks to everyone who helped organize this event, including the Scientific Committee members and, of course, all the contributors. Thanks to ISCA for administrative support. Special thanks to the ELTE Eötvös Loránd University, the Hungarian Linguistics Society, and the Hungarian National Research, Development and Innovation Office of Hungary (project No. K-120234).
