|Meeting Description:||Early 2014 will see the publication of the Oxford Handbook of Historical Phonology. In part to celebrate this, and in part because Historical Phonology is inherently worth celebrating, we are organising a Symposium on Historical Phonology, to be held at the University of Edinburgh on 13th and 14th January 2014.
The Handbook aims to gather together perspectives on phonological change and on the reconstruction of past phonological states from across the discipline. The table of contents is available here:
Contributors to the Handbook have been invited to attend the symposium, and the symposium will consist of presentations by some of them, the organisers, and anyone else who would like to attend. The intention is for the event to be organised informally but to involve serious discussion of theoretical and practical issues in Historical Phonology.
