  1. Marc van Oostendorp, Phonology in GLOW

Message 1: Phonology in GLOW

Date: Mon, 25 Feb 2002 14:17:40 +0100
From: Marc van Oostendorp <>
Subject: Phonology in GLOW


This year's GLOW programme contains the extraordinary number of 22 papers on
phonology, plus an invited lecture by Alan Prince (Rutgers). The Main
Session (Topic: Linguistic Microvariation; Location: Royal Netherlands
Academy of Sciences, Amsterdam) is organized in such a way that the
programme contains several interesting phonology papers on Wednesday, plus a
parallel session on phonology on Thursday. Immediately following this, we
offer a GLOW Workshop (Topic: First and Second Language Acquisition in
Phonology; Location: OTS, Utrecht) on Friday and Saterday, with Ellen
Broselow (State University of New York, Stony Brook) and Daniel Dinnsen
(Indiana University, Bloomington) as invited speakers, and an interesting
selection of papers.

All in all, we suppose that this year's GLOW will be among the biggest
phonological events in Europe of the past few years. We hope to welcome many
