Meeting Description:

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

Co-sponsored by:

Northwestern Department of Linguistics
Stanford Department of Linguistics
UMass Institute for Computational and Experimental Study of Language
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.

Spoken Sessions:

- ‘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’

There is no fee for registration. The workshop will include a coffee break with snacks.
To help with planning, we request that you register by emailing
