Call for Papers:

The Phonology of Contemporary English
PAC (La phonologie de l’anglais contemporain/The phonology of contemporary English)
10th annual meeting, Montpellier University, France
Monday 26 – Tuesday 27 May 2014

PAC is a project which aims at (1) giving a better picture of spoken English in its unity and diversity (geographical, social and stylistic), (2) testing phonological and phonetic models from a synchronic, diachronic and variationist point of view, (3) favouring communication between phonological studies and speech specialists, (4) providing data and analyses which will help improve the teaching of English as a foreign language.

To achieve these goals our project is involved in the construction of a corpus of spoken English from a wide variety of locations in the anglophone world, on the basis of a common data-collection protocol. Recent developments within the PAC community are the emergence of ICE-IPAC (The interphonology of contemporary English) and LVTI (Language, Ville, Travail Identité), centring on identity and possible dialect levelling in the UK and France.

Abstracts are invited on any aspect of the phonology of any variety of contemporary English. Abstracts are not limited to scholars working within the PAC project.

Papers will last 20 minutes, plus 10 minutes for questions.

Anonymised abstracts (maximum one page of A4, excluding references; Word or PDF format) should be submitted to philip.carruniv-montp3.fr by Friday 28 February 2014.

Notification of acceptance will be given by Friday 14 March 2014.
