Linguistic Sub-field: Phonology

Meeting Description:

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.

Please see the updated website for details about the confirmed
speakers, conference time, and registrationinformation.

The NYU Linguistics Department is pleased to announce the program for
the workshop ''Redefining Elicitation: Novel Data in Phonological
Theory'', to be held at NYU on April 9-11, 2004. For more information,
including paper abstracts, please visit our website at:

We would appreciate it if those wishing to attend would
preregister. While you do not have to pay in advance, it will be very
helpful as we prepare for the workshop. Further preregistration
information can be found on the website.
