Linguistic Sub-field: Phonology

Meeting Description:

This NYU workshop focuses on novel kinds of data and the ways in which
they can inform phonological theory. The Linguistics Department at New
York University is pleased to announce a phonology workshop entitled
''Redefining Elicitation: Novel Data in Phonological Theory''.

In recent years, new approaches to data acquisition and data analysis
have raised questions about the nature of phonological representations
and the organization of the phonological component of the
grammar. Such approaches include data acquired by acoustic and
articulatory methodologies, first and second language acquisition,
computer simulations, and large corpora. As a result, many traditional
problems in phonological theory can now be seen in a new light. The
goal of the workshop is to explore novel kinds of data and the ways in
which they can inform phonological theory.

Confirmed speakers include: 

Marie-H�l�ne C�te, University of Ottawa 
Stefan Frisch, University of South Florida 
Elliott Moreton, University of North Carolina 
Joe Pater, University of Massachusetts, Amherst 
Marianne Pouplier, University of Maryland 
Jie Zhang, University of Kansas 
Kie Zuraw, UCLA
