Ninth International Workshop on Writing Systems and Literacy
Brighton, UK, September 4th-5th 2014

This workshop is the ninth in a series of international meetings devoted to the issue of writing systems. The writing systems workshops have offered a forum for discussion between researchers from a range of different countries and linguistic backgrounds, working in a variety of fields of writing research such as theoretical linguistics, psycholinguistics, computational linguistics and language education.
Earlier themes included ‘What Spelling Changes’ (1997), ‘Writing Language’ (2000), ‘From Letter to Sound’ (2002), ‘Mapping graphemes onto phonemes’ (2004), ‘Constraints on Spelling Changes’ (2006), ‘Typology of Writing Systems’ (2008), ‘Units of Language - Units of Writing’ (2010) and ‘The Architecture of Writing Systems’ (2012). Previous meetings were held in Nijmegen (The Netherlands), Cologne (Germany), Antwerp (Belgium) and Braunschweig (Germany). This ninth workshop will take place in Brighton (UK).
