Linguistic Field(s): Phonology

Meeting Description:

This fourth edition of the International Seminar on Phonology will again take place in Porto Alegre. As in previous editions, it will be hosted by PUCRS, but it is a joint organization of the Graduate Programs in Linguistics and Literature from UFRGS (Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul) and from PUCRS (Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul). The main goal of the seminar is to provide researchers from Brazil and other countries with a venue to discuss phonology issues, addressing in particular phonology of Portuguese, indigenous languages and the Romance languages, phonological change, variation and acquisition.

Invited Speakers:

Paul Kiparsky (Stanford University)
Ricardo Bermúdez-Otero (University of Manchester)
Ben Hermans (Meertens Instituut, Amsterdam)
Leo Wetzels (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam)

There will be conferences, round-tables and paper presentations. Teachers, researchers and students from Brazil and other countries are invited. The seminar will feature short courses preceding the event, on April 23 and 24 (visit our webpage for more information and registration).
