Call for Papers:


We are pleased to announce the plans for our Nineteenth Manchester Phonology Meeting (19mfm). 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, and with excellent international transport connections). The meeting has become a key conference for phonologists from all over 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 languages, issues in phonological theory, aspects of phonological acquisition and implications of phonological change.

Special Session:

There is no conference theme - abstracts can be submitted on anything, but a special themed session has been organised for Friday afternoon, entitled 'Contrast in Phonology'. This will feature the invited speakers listed in the meeting description (in alphabetical order) and will conclude in an open discussion session when contributions from the audience will be very welcome.

Abstract Submission:

*This mentions only a few details - please consult the website for full information:

* We are using the Linguist List's EasyAbstracts system for abstract submission. Abstracts should be uploaded to the 18mfm's page on the EasyAbstracts site by 28th February 2011:

* Full papers will last around 25 minutes with around 5 minutes for questions, and there will be a high-profile poster session lasting one and a half hours. When you submit your abstract, you will be asked to indicate whether you would be prepared to present your work (i) either as a talk or a poster paper or (ii) only as a poster.

* We aim to finalise the programme, and to contact abstract-senders by around the late March, and we will contact all those who have sent abstracts as soon as the decisions have been made.

*Further important details* concerning abstract submission are available on the conference website. Please make sure that you consult these before submitting an abstract:
