Meeting Description:

The Eleventh Manchester Phonology Meeting (11mfm) is the latest in a
series of meetings which have become one of the key conferences for
phonologists from all corners of the world. In an informal atmosphere,
we discuss a wide range of topics, including the phonological
description of languages, phonological theory, phonological
acquisition, phonological change and the interface between phonology
and neighbouring disciplines (phonetics, sociolinguistics,
psycholinguistics, etc.)

There is no conference theme, but, following the success of such
sessions in previous years, a special themed session has been
organised on 'Historical Phonology And Phonological Theory'.

SPECIAL SESSION SPEAKERS (in alphabetical order): 
* Mark Hale (Concordia) 
* Paul Kiparsky (Stanford) 
* Aditi Lahiri (Konstanz) 
* April McMahon (Sheffield) 

This is the mfm organising committee. The first named is the main
organiser - if you would like to attend or if you have any queries
please feel free to get in touch (, or phone
+44 (0)1695 584244).
