Message 2: Call: GLOW Phonology Workshop

Date: Fri, 11 Sep 1998 14:14:07 +0200
From: Rene Kager <>
Subject: Call: GLOW Phonology Workshop

The GLOW Phonology Workshop

Phonetics in Phonology

April 1, 1999

Invited speakers: Edward Flemming, Donca Steriade

Organizers: Carlos Gussenhoven, Ren Kager

University of Postdam

The workshop is broadly concerned with the relevance of articulatory
and perceptual facts for phonological theory. More specifically, it
intends to focus on such questions as the extent to which functional
factors determine phonological grammars, the status of the distinction
between phonological representation and phonetic implementation, the
issue of multiple (articulation-based as well as perception-based)
phonological representations, and the universality and `groundedness' of
phonological constraints.

The workshop will consist of approximately 7 talks of 45 minutes
each, followed by 15 minutes of discussion. Abstracts may not
exceed one page with at least a 1 inch margin on all four sides and
should employ a font no smaller than 12 pt. They should be sent
anonymously in threefold, accompanied by a camera-ready original with
the author's name, address and affiliation, to
