Meeting Description:

The Department of Linguistics at the University of Chicago is pleased to
announce a symposium entitled 'Phonologization' to be held at the University of
Chicago, April 25-26, 2008. Explanations for sound change have focused
traditionally on identifying the inception of change, the nature of
phonologization - the transition from intrinsic phonetic variation to extrinsic
phonological encoding - remains largely unexplored. The goal of this workshop is
to facilitate collaboration among phonologists as well as specialists from
neighboring disciplines seeking unified theoretical explanations for the origins
of sound patterns in language, as well as to move toward a new and improved
synthesis of synchronic and diachronic phonology.

The program of the Symposium on Phonologization to be held at the University of
Chicago on April 25-26 is now available at:
