Book Information


Title: Laboratory Phonology 9
Edited By: Jennifer S. Cole
José Ignacio Hualde
Series Title: Phonology and Phonetics [PP] 4-3

This book contains a selection of papers presented at the 9th Conference on
Laboratory Phonology, which was held in June 2004 at the Beckman Institute
for Advanced Science and Technology on the campus of the University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The theme of the conference was Change in
Phonology, broadly conceived as to include both language evolution at the
level of the speech community and development within the individual
speaker/hearer. The chapters in this book are organized in five sections:
phonological variation and change within the speech community, mechanisms
of change in sound systems, phonological acquisition from different
experimental perspectives, second language phonology, modeling of language
variation, and segmental and suprasegmental phenomena related to the timing
of speech gestures. These topics are explored from a number of
perspectives, both within and outside of traditional linguistics. We
believe that the papers included in this volume demonstrate that the
Laboratory Phonology approach has reached maturity and has succeeded in its
aim not only to bridge the gap between phonetics and phonology but also to
establish a fruitful and mutually beneficial dialog between linguists and
other scientists and scholars concerned with the study of the sound
patterns of human language from different perspectives.
