BACKGROUND

We are pleased to announce our Eleventh Manchester Phonology Meeting
(11mfm). For the past ten years, this meeting has been 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.) We therefore invite
abstracts for full papers or poster presentations from phonologists,
phoneticians, psychologists, sociolinguists, computational linguists -
in short, anyone interested in exploring current models of
phonological theory and the (cognitive, phonetic, sociological,
computational...) implications of such work. Presentations on a
variety of languages are welcome. Full papers will last around 30
minutes with around 10 minutes for questions, and the poster session
is a key part of the mfm, lasting one and a half hours, with a
carefully limited number of posters.

- ------------------------

SPECIAL SESSION 

There is no conference theme - abstracts can be submitted on anything,
but, following the success of such sessions in previous years, a
special themed session has been organised for Friday afternoon by
Ricardo Bermudez-Otero (Newcastle), Patrick Honeybone (Edge Hill) and
Nigel Vincent (Manchester). This will feature invited speakers and
will conclude in an open discussion session when contributions from
the audience will be very welcome.

SESSION TITLE: 'Historical Phonology And Phonological Theory'

Historical perspectives have long helped to shape phonological theory,
and historical phonologists have long sought to test the validity of
theoretical models using data from phonological change. There is, for
example, a long tradition of enquiry that uses evidence from
historical change (e.g. processes of lenition) to probe the nature and
structure of phonological representations. The importance that
theoretical phonologists have placed on historical data has varied
over the years, but it is currently proving to be uniquely relevant to
theoretical debates in several phonological fields. Diachronic
evidence has a direct bearing on the nature and status of markedness
constraints, which take on a central role in the phonological grammar
in the model of Optimality Theory; however, several critics of OT have
argued that markedness generalizations are in fact mere epiphenomena
of recurrent processes of diachronic change, and, as these are driven
by performance factors, they should be excluded from 'phonology'
proper. For other authors, these performance factors are the direct
base of phonology. It is also the case that the rise of strictly
parallel approaches to the morphology-phonology interface, such as OT,
has posed a challenge to long-accepted views of the life cycle of
phonological patterns, according to which rules tend to rise from
lower to higher phonological strata in the course of their historical
evolution. These are some of the issues that will be addressed in the
session, along with the discussion of our speakers' diachronic data.

SPEAKERS (in alphabetical order): 
* Mark Hale (Concordia)
