Meeting Description: We are pleased to announce that the PAC annual conference ‘Spoken English Corpora: From Annotation to Interphonologies’ is due to take place from Thursday May 30 to Saturday June 1, 2013 and will be hosted by the Laboratoire Parole et Langage (http://www.lpl.univ-aix.fr/) and Aix-Marseille University at Aix-en-Provence.

The PAC Project (http://www.projet-pac.net), ‘La Phonologie de l’Anglais Contemporain : Usages, Variétés et Structure; The Phonology of Contemporary English: Usage, Varieties and Structure’ is coordinated by Anne Przewozny, Philip Carr and Jacques Durand. Among other things it aims at:

- giving a better picture of spoken English in its unity and diversity (geographical, social and stylistic);
- testing phonological and phonetic models from a synchronic and diachronic point of view, making room for the systematic study of variation;
- favouring communication between specialists in speech and in phonological theory; and
- providing data and analyses which will help improve the teaching of English as a foreign language.
Linguistic Subfield: Phonetics; Phonology; Sociolinguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics
Subject Language: English
LL Issue: 24.636

The following session(s) will be held during this meeting:
