Subject: Phonology/Phonetics Workshop

 As part of the conference LP '98 (Linguistics & Phonetics '98) at
Ohio State University September 15-20, a workshop is being funded by
the National Science Foundation September 19-20, on Syllable Structure
and Gesture Timing, covering issues related to phonetic and
phonological accounts of segmentation and timing and ordering of
gestures in speech, especially how sequences of consonants are
represented. Interested participants are invited to attend this
workshop. Presentations at the workshop will include the following.

- ------------------
G. N. Clements: Affricates as internally unsequenced stops

Louis Goldstein: (TBA)

John Harris: The right edge of words and the left edge of syllables

John Ohala: Doing without the syllable

Donca Steriade: Alternatives to the syllabic interpretation of
 segmental phonotactics

Ioana Chitoran: Some evidence for feature specification constraints
 on Georgian consonant sequencing

Young-mee Yu Cho & Tracy King: Semi-syllables and universal

Alexei Kochetov: Neutralization of palatality: syllable structure or
 phonetic cues?

Miguel Vazquez-Larruscain: The structure of the stricture features:
 on the limits of Icelandic preaspiration

Yen-Hwei Lin: On minor syllables

Amanda Miller-Ockhuizen: C-V coarticulation and complex consonants

Frida Morelli: Are s+STOP clusters really special?
