Fifteenth Manchester Phonology Meeting

24-26 May 2007

Deadline for abstracts: 1st March 2007

Conference website: www.englang.ed.ac.uk/mfm/15mfm.html


We are pleased to announce our Fifteenth Manchester Phonology Meeting
(15mfm). 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.

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, entitled 'Where is
allomorphy?' 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)
- Ricardo Bermudez-Otero (University of Manchester)
- Mirjam Ernestus (Radboud Univeristy & Max Planck Institute, Nijmegen)
- John McCarthy (University of Massachusetts)
- Glyne Piggott (McGill University)

Abstract Submission

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 1st March 2007.

- 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

abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by members of the organising
committee and advisory board.

plain text. If you need to use a phonetic font in your abstract,
either embed it in a pdf file, or use the Doulos SIL font

- Full papers will last around 25 minutes with around 5 minutes for
questions, 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
