Meeting Description

CUNY Phonology Forum Conference on the Syllable in Phonology

Sponsored by the MA/PhD Program in Linguistics at the City University of New
York and the CUNY Phonology Forum

January 17th-18th, 2008 at the CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue, New York

Call for Papers

We invite papers from any subdivision of cognitive science such as formal
linguistics, language acquisition, neurolinguistics, philosophy, psychology,
etc. We also encourage diversity in methods so we welcome both formal and
experimental approaches to the topic of syllables.

The following list of questions is meant to be suggestive and provocative. In
fact the organizers wish to throw the field of discussion to all matters related
to the syllable in phonology or phonetics.

Do syllables exist?

Are syllables derived? Is syllable structure ever lexically distinctive?

What is the internal structure of the syllable?

Are syllables hierarchically dominated by other prosodic categories?

What principles guide the syllabification of a string of phonemes?

What aspects of syllables are referred to by morphological and phonological

How do phonetic syllables relate to phonological syllables (and vice versa)?

What is the role of sonority for syllables?

Invited Speakers:
Harry van der Hulst, University of Connecticut
Paul Kiparsky, Stanford University
Stefanie Shattuck-Hufnagel, MIT
Donca Steriade, MIT
Bert Vaux, University of Cambridge

Submission Guidelines:
Abstracts should consist of a one page description of the paper (12pt font) with
a second page for references, data and/or illustrations. Talks will be 20
minutes with 10 minutes for discussion. Abstracts should be emailed as an
attachment (PDF format) to syllablecunyphonologyforum.net no later than

Meeting Description
- ICPLJ6 is intended to bring together researchers on the cutting edge of
Japanese linguistics and to offer a forum in which their research results can be
presented in a form that is useful to those desiring practical applications in
the fields of teaching Japanese as a second/foreign language and
computer-assisted language learning (CALL) technology.
- All topics in linguistics will be fully considered, including: phonology,
morphology, syntax, semantics, lexicon, pragmatics (discourse analysis), and
second language acquisition (bilingualism).
- Abstracts submitted must represent original, unpublished research.

Submission Guidelines
All submissions should be received by November 2, 2007.

used for review; we may ask the submission of longer summaries for inclusion in
the conference program book if your abstract is accepted. Examples, figures,
tables, and references may be given on a second page. Please note the following:
(1) All conference papers will be selected on the basis of submitted summaries.
Thus, any information that may reveal your identity should not be included in
the summary.
(2) Summaries either in Japanese or English will be accepted. However, if the
