Fourteenth Manchester Phonology Meeting

25-27 MAY 2005

Deadline for abstracts: 20th February 2006

Special session: 'Fieldwork and phonological theory' (featuring Dan Everett,
Larry Hyman, Keren Rice)

Held in Manchester, UK; organised through a collaboration of phonologists at the
University of Edinburgh, the University of Manchester, the Universite
Toulouse-Le Mirail, the Universite Montpellier-Paul Valery and elsewhere.

Conference website: www.englang.ed.ac.uk/mfm/14mfm.html

We are pleased to announce our Fourteenth Manchester Phonology Meeting (14mfm).
The mfm is the UK's annual phonology conference, with an international set of
organisers; it is held in late May every year in Manchester. The meeting has
become a key conference for phonologists from all corners of the world, where
anyone who declares themselves to be interested in phonology can submit an
abstract on anything phonological in any phonological framework. In an informal
atmosphere, we discuss a wide range of topics, including the phonological
description of a wide variety of languages, issues in phonological theory,
aspects of phonological acquisition and implications of phonological change.

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, entitled 'Fieldwork and phonological theory'. This
will feature invited speakers and conclude in an open discussion session when
contributions from the audience will be very welcome. Abstracts which attempt to
deal overtly with the issues involved with this (from any perspective) are
certainly welcome.

SPECIAL SESSION SPEAKERS (in alphabetical order)
* Dan Everett (University of Manchester, UK)
* Larry Hyman (University of California, Berkeley, USA)
* Keren Rice (University of Toronto, Canada)

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

* There is no obligatory conference theme - abstracts can be submitted on
anything. Abstracts should be sent to Patrick Honeybone as attachments to an
email (patrick.honeyboneed.ac.uk) by 20th February 2006.

* 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 address at the top of the
page, directly below the title. All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by
members of the organising committee and advisory board.

* Please use one of these formats for your abstract: pdf, Word, or plain text.
If you need to use a phonetic font in your abstract, either embed it in a pdf

and there will be a high-profile poster session lasting one and a half hours.
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 around
20th 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.
