BACKGROUND
We are pleased to announce our Twelfth Manchester Phonology Meeting
(12mfm). The mfm is the UK's annual phonology conference, held in late
May every year in Manchester and organised by people in various parts
of the country, and abroad. In an informal atmosphere, we discuss a
wide range of topics, including the phonological description of a wide
range of languages, issues in phonological theory, aspects of
phonological acquisition and implications of phonological change;
anyone interested in phonology can submit an abstract on anything
phonological. Full papers will last around 30 minutes with around 10
minutes for questions, and there will be a high-profile poster session
lasting one and a half hours.


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 on 'Phonology and Loanword
Adaptation'. This will feature invited speakers and conclude in an
open discussion session when contributions from the audience will be
very welcome. Abstracts on this theme are also certainly welcome.

SPECIAL SESSION SPEAKERS (in alphabetical order)
* Michael Kenstowicz (MIT, USA)
* Carole Paradis (Universite Laval, Canada)
* Moira Yip (University College London, UK)


ABSTRACT SUBMISSION
**This is a summary - please consult the website for full details**

* There is no conference theme - abstracts can be submitted on
anything. Abstracts should be sent to Patrick Honeybone by email
(patrick.honeyboneed.ac.uk) by 15th February 2004.
* Abstracts should be no longer than one side of A4, with 2.5cm or one
inch margins, single-spaced, with a font size no smaller than 12, and
with normal character spacing.
* Please send two copies of your abstract - one of these should be
anonymous and one should include your name, affiliation and email at
the top of the page, directly below the title.
* Please use one of these formats for your abstract: rtf, Word, pdf,
or plain text. If you need to use a phonetic font in your abstract,
either embed it in a pdf file, or use the SILdoulos93 font, which can
be downloaded for free from this site:
www.sil.org/computing/fonts/encore-ipa2.
* Please indicate whether you would prefer to present your work as an
oral paper or a poster, or whether you would be prepared to present it
in either form.
* If you need technical equipment for your talk, please say so in the
message accompanying your abstract and we will do our best to provide
it, although this cannot be guaranteed.
* We aim to finalise the programme, and to contact abstract-senders by
mid-March. At present, there are no plans for publishing the general
proceedings of the Meeting. We would like to keep the mfm as an
informal forum where speakers can air new ideas which are still in the
early stages of development.

**Further important details** concerning abstract submission are
available on the conference website - please make sure that you
consult these before submitting an abstract:

A NOTE ON DATE CLASHES 
We are aware that the mfm dates clash with those of the Third North
American Phonology Conference
(www-cmll.concordia.ca/linguistics/naphc/). We find this *very
unfortunate indeed* but there is unfortunately nothing that can be
done now by the organisers of either conference to move their dates,
as venues were booked and speakers invited independently and cannot
now be changed. For our part, we recognise that it would have been
good if there had been some way of consulting with the organisers of
other phonology conferences to avoid this kind of thing, but we
blindly went ahead with dates around 20th of May, as we always have in
the past. We hope very much that this can be avoided in future, and
propose to work to set up some means to allow this. We think, though,
that the phonological world is big enough to support two conferences
simultaneously...
