Meeting Description:

The conference is aimed at bringing together phoneticians, phonologists and
speech engineers and all those who are currently working on 'turbulent' sounds
such as fricatives and affricates as well as stops and clicks. By considering
these sounds from different perspectives we hope to gain new insights into their
phonetic nature and the adequacy of their phonological representation.

Papers which relate to the following issues are particularly welcome:
- articulation, aerodynamics, acoustics, and perception of turbulent sounds
- speaker normalization and quantification in articulatory and acoustic
description of turbulent sounds
- signal processing specific to turbulent sounds
- the role of phonetics for explaining phonological patterns and processes
- articulatory and/or perceptual basis for postulating phonological features
- the adequacy of (new) phonological theories for application of phonetic facts

Invited speakers are:
Seiji Adachi (ATR, Kyoto, Japan)
Hyunsoon Kim (Hongik University, Korea)
Jaye Padgett (University of Santa Cruz, USA)
Christine Shadle (Haskins Laboratories, New Haven, USA)

Submissions are solicited for the general session and for poster presentations.
Presentations will be 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes discussion.
The abstract should be anonymous, maximally two pages long. The author's name
and affiliation should be indicated in the email. Deadline for submission of
abstracts is 1 July. Notification of acceptance for program by 31 July.

Please submit your abstract as a pdf file to msmzas.gwz-berlin.de
