Meeting Description:

RaAM6 is an interdisciplinary conference, welcoming work from any relevant
discipline and using any theory that highlights the many and complex roles of
metaphor in real world contexts.

RaAM 6
Researching and Applying Metaphor: Ten years on.
Conference to be held at the University of Leeds
10 - 12 April, 2006.


This sixth conference in the RaAM series returns to Yorkshire, UK to celebrate
10 years of Researching and Applying Metaphor.

Theme: Metaphor in the real world.

The 10th anniversary RaAM conference aims to look back over a decade and five
successful international RaAM conferences in order to assess key developments in
our particular area of metaphor studies.

RaAM began as a small seminar in York in January 1996, funded by the British
Association for Applied Linguistics and Cambridge University Press. A key
feature of that first meeting was the exploration of the nature and use of
metaphor in naturally-occurring discourse data. The ''applying'' in the title
refers to our commitment to using research to address and to try to ameliorate
'real world' issues and situations.

For RaAM6 we wish to preserve the characteristics of friendliness and equality
that have made previous RaAM events different from many other academic
conferences: it is an opportunity to meet people and talk shop in a supportive way.

Meeting Description:

The 10th Conference on Laboratory Phonology (LabPhon 10) will take place in
Paris, France, June 29 - July 1, 2006. The theme of the conference is
'Variation, Detail and Representation'. The deadline for abstract submission is
December 5, 2005.

First Announcement and Call for Papers
The Tenth Conference on Laboratory Phonology (LabPhon 10)
29 June-1 July 2006 - Paris, France

The 10th Conference on Laboratory Phonology is to be held in Paris, hosted by
the LPP/Paris, the LPL/Aix-en-Provence, the ICP/Grenoble and the LLING/Nantes.

The aim of the conference, entitled ''Variation, Detail and Representation'', is
to better understand and define the linguistic relevance of patterns of
variation in speech production, perception and acquisition; their range and
limitations in normal and pathological speech; their implications for language
universals; and their impact on phonological theories.

The themes of the conference and the questions we would like to address are:

How to determine the language-specific interpretation of phonetic detail and its
importance for both speech production and perception? How to distinguish it from
intrinsic low level variation of the motor system? To what extent is phonetic
detail relevant for phonological theories and representations?
Invited speaker & discussant: Sarah HAWKINS (U. Cambridge, UK) & Edward FLEMMING
Invited speaker & discussant: Maria-Josep SOLÉ (UA. Barcelona, Spain) & Jean-Luc

'normal' variation stop and 'pathological' variation start? Can we distinguish
the two? What does pathological variation tell us about phonological
representations? What do pathological patterns of emergence tell us about the
normal learning paths?
Invited speaker & discussant: Grzegorz DOGIL (U. Stuttgart, Germany) & Raymond
KENT (U. of Wisconsin-Madison, USA)

* VARIATION AND THE EMERGENCE OF PHONOLOGY: How is variation dealt with during
the acquisition process? What are the interactions between production and
perception in the build-up of phonological representations? Is the acquisition
process sensitive to phonetic detail?
Invited speaker & discussant: Paula FIKKERT (Radboud U. Nijmegen, Netherland) &
Frank RAMUS (LSCP, France)

* VARIATION AND LANGUAGE UNIVERSALS: To what extent are phonological universals
rooted in phonetics? Are there universal patterns in variation? Can they be
formalized? What is the relationship between phonological markedness and
phonetic variation?
Invited speaker & discussant: Ian MADDIESON (UC Berkeley, USA) & Nick CLEMENTS
(LPP, France)

Twenty-one years after its first edition, LabPhon 10 will celebrate the occasion
with a SPECIAL 10TH ANNIVERSARY SESSION. In this session, we expect submissions
on: how laboratory research has changed our conception of phonetic and
phonological representations; the need to re-evaluate the relationship between
the two; what models based on phonetic detail and probability effects tell us
about the nature of the interface.
Invited speaker: Abigail COHN (U. Cornell, USA)

Abstract submission: December 5, 2005
Notification of acceptance: February 15, 2006
Submission of accepted papers: April 14, 2006

10 web page will be opened shortly at http://www.lpl.univ-aix.fr/~labphon10/
