Variation in the Acquisition of Sound Systems
Workshop at the Linguistic Institute 2013: Universality and Variability
University of Michigan
Friday, June 28, 2013
New York University Department of Linguistics
Northwestern Department of Linguistics
What is the role of variability in how sound systems are acquired or changed? This workshop examines this topic from a number of different phonetic, phonological, and psycholinguistic perspectives, including child language acquisition, non-native production and perception, sound change, and phonotactic learning. The workshop will be held on one day, including invited 1 hour talks and a poster session.
Tentative Titles for Oral Presentations:
Lisa Davidson (New York University): Signal variability and phonetic detail in the production of non-native phonotactics
Matt Goldrick (Northwestern University): Abstraction and the acquisition of variable phonotactic patterns
Bob McMurray (University of Iowa): Variability and the emergence of abstraction from basic learning principles: Evidence from early word learning and reading
Katherine White (University of Waterloo): Coping with phonetic variation in early word recognition
Alan Yu (University of Chicago): Cross-individual variation in speech perception and production
2nd Call for Posters:
We invite submission of abstracts reporting computational, experimental, neurobiological, and grammar-based research on the role of variation in sound system acquisition and change.
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 lsa2013-workshopling.northwestern.edu. Deadline for submissions: March 15, 2013.
Accepted abstracts will be posted to the workshop website.
Note: Participants may also be interested in the workshop on ‘Universality and Variability: New Insights from Genetics’ to be held the following weekend (June 29-30). See http://genlang2013.weebly.com/ for more details.
