Linguistic Field(s): Phonology

Meeting Description:

The MFM is the UK's annual phonology conference, with an international set of organisers; it is held in late May every year in Manchester (central in the UK, easily accessible from the whole of the country, and with excellent international transport connections). The meeting has become a key conference for phonologists from all corners of the world, where anyone who declares themselves to be interested in phonology can submit an abstract on anything phonological in any phonological framework. In an informal atmosphere, we discuss a broad range of topics, including the phonological description of a wide variety of languages, issues in phonological theory, aspects of phonological acquisition and implications of phonological change.
