Meeting Description: We are pleased to announce the 21st Manchester Phonology Meeting (21mfm). The mfm is the UK’s annual phonology conference, with an international set of organisers. It is held in late May every year in Manchester (central in the UK, and with excellent international transport connections). The meeting has become a key conference for phonologists from all over the world, where anyone who declares themselves to be interested in phonology can contribute discussion on anything phonological in any phonological framework. In an informal atmosphere, we discuss a broad range of topics, including the phonological description of languages, issues in phonological theory, aspects of phonological acquisition and implications of phonological change.

Special session: ‘Harmony in Phonology’, featuring:

Andrew Nevins (University College London)
Miklos Torkenczy (Eotvos Lorand University)
