SEMINAIRE:

ANALYSE DECLARATIVE DE LA SYLLABE

UNIVERSITE DE NANTES
2-24 mars 2000

Organisateur: Jean-Pierre ANGOUJARD (professeur � l'Universit� de Nantes)
		Equipe "Acoustique, Acquisition et Interpr�tation" (AAI-JE2220)
(en collaboration avec John REIGHARD, professeur � l'Universit� de Montr�al)

OBJECTIFS

Ce s�minaire semi-intensif (24h) n'a pas pour but premier d'offrir une
initiation � la Phonologie D�clarative. Il s'adresse a priori aux
chercheurs, enseignants et �tudiants de 3�me cycle qui ont d�j� une
connaissance raisonnable de l'approche d�clarative (Bird, 1990, 1995;
Angoujard, 1997b).

Il s'agira de mesurer et de discuter les apports de la Phonologie
D�clarative � l'analyse des structures syllabiques dans les langues du
monde. L'objet "syllabe" est d�j�, en soi, tout un programme (Angoujard,
1997a). Plusieurs travaux en cours, notamment � Nantes et � Montr�al, ont
pour ambition de mettre en place une conception strictement d�clarative de
cet objet.

Nous chercherons, au cours de ce s�minaire, � confronter les diff�rentes
perspectives et � progresser vers une meilleure compr�hension des
contraintes, tant universelles (principes) que sp�cifiques (param�tres),
qui gouvernent l'organisation syllabique.

ORGANISATION

Ce s�minaire aura lieu � raison de 2 fois 3 heures hebdomadaires (les jeudi
et vendredi de 14h � 17h) durant 4 semaines (du 2 au 24 mars 2000). Il se
tiendra � l'Universit� de Nantes (Facult� des Lettres et Sciences Humaines,
b�timent Censive, salle 4046).

La participation � ce s�minaire est gratuite (les d�placements et les frais
de s�jours sont � la charge des participants).Ce s�minaire est ouvert, en
priorit�, aux chercheurs, enseignants et �tudiants de 3�me cycle des
universit�s de Nantes et de Montr�al. Il est �galement ouvert, sur demande
adress�e � l'organisateur, � toute autre personne int�ress�e par le sujet
retenu. Tout participant qui souhaiterait animer une s�ance (ou partie de
s�ance) de ce s�minaire est pri�e d'en avertir l'organisateur avant le 31
d�cembre 1999.

PROGRAMME (provisoire, partiel et non ordonn�)

Le "mod�le rythmique" : une analyse d�clarative par "principes et param�tres"
de la syllabe (J.P. Angoujard)
La syllabe en fran�ais, quelles sp�cificit�s?
Le langage Prolog et l'analyse d�clarative (J. Reighard)
Longueur vocalique et diphtongaison dans le fran�ais de Montr�al (A. Th�riault)
Glides et structure syllabique en fran�ais (D. Pourin)
L'approche d�clarative: quelles cons�quences pour l'acquisition (S.
Wauquier-Gravelines)

SEMINAR
DECLARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE SYLLABLE

UNIVERSITE DE NANTES
2-24 March 2000

Organised by Jean-Pierre Angoujard (Professor, Universite de Nantes),
	"Acoustics, acquisition and Interpretation" Team, (AAI-JE2220)
	In collaboration with John Reighard (Professor, Universite de Montreal)

GOALS
	This semi-intensive seminar (24 hours) is aimed at researcher,
professor or graduate student, already familiar with Declarative Phonology
(DP) (Bird, 1990, 1995; Angoujard, 1997b). It will be an occasion for the
participants to discuss and measure the impact of DP on the analysis of the
syllabic structure in the world languages. The object "syllable" is in
itself a program (Angoujard 1997a). Many research projects are held around
the world (in Montreal and Nantes to name a few) in order to give to this
object a strictly declarative conception.
	During this seminar, different perspectives will be confronted in
order to progress towards a better understanding of the constraints,
universal (principle) and specific (parameters), governing the syllable.

ORGANISATION

This seminar will be held twice a week (Thursday and Friday from 2pm to
4pm) for 4 consecutive weeks (2-24 March 2000) at Universite de Nantes
(Faculte des Lettres et Sciences Humaines, batiment Censive, salle 4046).

There will be no charge to this seminar (transportation and accommodation
are to the responsibility of the participant). This seminar is mainly
addressed to researchers, professors and graduate students of Universite de
Nantes and Universite de Montreal. It is also open to any other interested
person (a request must be addressed to the organiser). Any one interested
in directing a session (or part of a session) should get in touch with the
organiser before December 31 1999
