Call for papers

First North American Phonology Conference (NAPhC)

The Linguistics Program at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec
will host the First North American Phonology Conference (NAPhC) from
April 28-30th, 2000. We are founding this conference in association
with a number of Canadian Universities in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto
and we expect the conference to be held every other year on a rotation
among these, and perhaps other, institutions in North America.

The Concordia Linguistics Students Association will be hosting a talk
by Morris Halle of MIT on the evening of Thursday, April 27th, so
conference participants will want to arrive early enough to attend
this special event.

Abstract submission is invited on any area of theoretical phonology,
although, in recognition of the ten-year anniversary of the
publication of Inkelas and Zec's "Phonology-Syntax Connection", we
especially hope to have submissions on phonology above the word
level. Graduate students are encouraged to submit abstracts.

Abstract length is not limited--complete papers may be submitted for
evaluation. Papers may be submitted and presented in French or English.

We are pleased to announce that the following phonologists
have all accepted invitations to the conference:

Abigail Cohn (Cornell)
Sharon Inkelas (Berkeley)
Glyne Piggott (McGill)
Keren Rice (Toronto)
Donca Steriade (UCLA)

Accepted papers will be allotted 40 minutes, including discussion time.
Papers not accepted as talks will be considered for the Poster Sessions.
Please indicate in your message if you do NOT want to be considered for
a poster presentation. 

Abstracts must be submitted electronically to

Deadline for receipt of abstracts is December 15, 1999. Registration
information will be provided after the announcement of the program in
Preferred formats in decreasing order are pdf, ps, plain text, WORD
(Mac or Windows), WordPerfect (Mac or Windows). Word and Wordperfect
users should use no other phonetics fonts than SIL Doulos (available
at ). If you make a ps file under Windows or Mac,
please verify its integrity before sending it.

Further information will be available at
