Testing Models of Phonetics and Phonology
Workshop at the Linguistic Institute 2011: Language in the World
University of Colorado at Boulder
Wednesday, July 13th, 2011
Northwestern Department of Linguistics
Stanford Department of Linguistics
National Science Foundation
This single day workshop aims to build connections between computational, experimental, and grammar-based research on phonetics and phonology. Studies using each of these general methodologies often have similar goals and produce mutually informing results, but they are usually presented in distinct journals and conferences, creating a barrier to their integration. The workshop brings together researchers in the areas of speech production, speech perception, and modeling of language acquisition.
- ‘The Balance Between the Gradient and the Discrete in Language Production’:
Gary Dell (U Illinois Urbana Champaign), ‘Implicit Learning of Artificial Phonotactic Patterns in the Production System: Connections to the Perceptual System and to Real Phonotactic Knowledge’
Matt Goldrick (Northwestern), ‘Gradient Symbol Processing in Speech Production’
- ‘Listener Adaptation to Variation’:
Jennifer Cole (U Illinois Urbana Champaign), ‘Modeling Listener Variability in Prosody Perception Using Transcription and Imitation as Indirect Measures of Linguistic Processing’
Meghan Sumner (Stanford), ‘Variation-driven Speech Perception’
- ‘Acquisition Biases and Typological Patterns’:
Andrew Wedel (U Arizona), ‘Extending Computational Models into the Laboratory: Usage Biases and the Development of Contrastive Phoneme Inventories’
Joe Pater (U Massachusetts Amherst), ‘Formally Biased Phonology: Complexity in Learning and Typology’
Call for Papers:
In addition to the spoken session, a poster session will be held during the workshop. We invite submission of abstracts reporting computational, experimental, and grammar-based research on phonetics and phonology.
Abstracts should be a one-page .pdf file, formatted at minimum 12-point single-spaced with 1 inch margins. Tables, graphs and references can be on a separate page. Abstracts must be submitted electronically to lsa2011-workshopling.northwestern.edu. Deadline for submissions: May 1, 2011.
Accepted abstracts will be posted to the workshop website.
Note: Participants may also be interested in the workshop on 'Information-based approaches to linguistics' to be held the following weekend (July 16-17). See https://verbs.colorado.edu/LSA2011/workshops/WS5.html for more details.
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $67,000. This money will go to help
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
