The Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL) and the Meertens Instituut Amsterdam are proud to announce that the eleventh Old World Conference in Phonology (OCP 11) will take place in Leiden and Amsterdam from 23 to 25 January 2014. It is organised by a group of local phonologists and follows in the line of previous OCP conferences, which have been held in Leiden, Tromsø, Budapest, Rhodes, Toulouse, Edinburgh, Nice, Marrakech, Berlin, and Istanbul.

The conference will be preceded by a workshop on the relationship between phonetics and phonology on 22 January. Everyone attending the conference is very welcome to attend the workshop, too.

Pre-Conference Workshop on the Relationship between Phonetics and Phonology:

During the last years a special attention has been devoted to the relationship between phonetics and phonology. However, most of the questions dealing with the role of phonetics in formal models of phonology are still unanswered. As a matter of illustration, some of these questions are the following: are phonological features grounded in phonetics, or are they substance-free? If features are grounded in phonetics, are they based on articulation or acoustics? Is the mapping between the phonological output and phonetics a direct or an indirect one? Should functional explanations of phonological patterns be included in formal phonology, or are synchronic phonological patterns just phonetically arbitrary, meaning that those explanations do not belong to grammar but to other theories such as sound change? How is metrical structure reflected in phonetics? (How) should phonetic variation in the speech signal be captured in phonological theory?
