Fourteenth Manchester Phonology Meeting
See LINGUIST List issue 16.3680
25-27 MAY 2006

In light of the recent sad news of the death of Peter Ladefoged, the
organisers of the Manchester Phonology Meeting ('mfm') would like to
dedicate the next meeting to his memory, to show our great respect for his
work. We feel that this is especially appropriate as the meeting will
feature a special session on 'Fieldwork and Phonological Theory'.
Ladefoged's contribution to the development of phonological fieldwork and
thus to our knowledge of the phonology of the world's anguages is, of
course, immeasurable.

As well as the already advertised invited speakers on the topic (Dan
Everett, Larry Hyman and Keren Rice), the mfm will feature a discussion of
Ladefoged's approach and contribution to fieldwork, led by Dan Everett and
Jacques Durand, and a collection for the Endangered Languages Fund,
following the request that donations be made to ELF in his memory.

Abstracts may still be submitted for the mfm until 20th February 2006.

Full details of the mfm can be found here:


Linguistic Field(s): Phonetics; Phonology
