Meeting Description:

'Phonology in the 21st Century: In Honour of Glyne Piggott' is a conference
in honour of Professor Glyne Piggott who retired in May 2010 from the
Department of Linguistics at McGill University. For over forty years, Prof
Piggott has been a supporter of the highest quality research in phonology,
the study of how sounds are organized into grammatical systems. He is well
recognized for maintaining the most rigorous approach to theory building
and testing, coupled with intellectual breadth and curiosity. This has
resulted in outstanding contributions in terms of his own research, his
influence on his peers, and his training and supervision of new generations
of linguists. He instills in those around him the need to have a wide
perspective on thinking in the field, and challenges his students to become
independent scholars who will survive the theoretical whims of the time.
Although the conference is organized to honour Prof Piggott, its theoretical
objective is to highlight phonological research at the end of the first decade
of the 21st century, evaluating the contributions of the past forty years in
light of the primary theoretical and empirical concerns of today.
