Meeting Description:

Variation in the Acquisition of Sound Systems
Workshop at the Linguistic Institute 2013: Universality and Variability
University of Michigan
Friday, June 28, 2013
http://groups.linguistics.northwestern.edu/lsa2013-workshop/

Co-sponsored by:

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.

Titles for Oral Presentations:

Lisa Davidson (New York University): Variability attenuates sensitivity to acoustic detail in cross-language speech production
Matt Goldrick (Northwestern University): Abstraction and phonetic detail in the acquisition of gradient phonotactics
Bob McMurray (University of Iowa): Variability and the emergence of abstraction from simple 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

Further information about the talks, posters and abstracts can be found at:
