Subject: Laboratory Phonology 8, June, New Haven, CT

 We would like to remind the phonology and phonetics 
communities that the registration deadline for the Eighth Laboratory 
Phonology conference at Yale University and Haskins Laboratories is 
approaching. The conference runs from 27 June to 30 June in New 
Haven, Connecticut. We have an outstanding lineup of papers 
addressing the phonetics/phonology interface, addressing themes both 
familiar and novel. The familiar themes include phonological 
alternations, encoding and production, acquisition, and the internal 
structure of segments. The novel themes include sign language 
phonology and modeling the emergence of phonological structure. 
Results come from a wide range of languages, including five 
endangered ones. The range of topics can be viewed at: under "Program" and "Abstracts."
 Early registration ends soon--check the "Registration" button 
on the web site. Those who plan to attend will want to make sure 
that they secure a room in official, on-site housing. This 
air-conditioned dorm consists entirely of suites sharing a living 
room, bathroom, and kitchenette. The rate is quite reasonable, 
thanks in part to a grant from the National Science Foundation, and 
several LabPhon functions will occur at the dorm. To view the 
facilities, go to and 
click on "Housing" at the bottom of the page-look for the "Swing 
Space" description. Registration includes breakfasts, two lunches, 
coffee breaks and a banquet in the Hall of Dinosaurs at the Peabody 
 If you have any questions about LabPhon 8, please contact us
 We hope to see you in New Haven in June.

 Stephen Anderson, Yale University
