Linguistic Field(s): Phonology

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.

The Program and the local coordinates have been posted on the Conference
Website. Please note that if you want to participate in the conference banquet,
you have to register at the latest by April 18. The number of spaces at the
banquet is limited.

Looking forward to seeing you in Montréal!
