Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the 22nd Manchester Phonology Meeting (22mfm). 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 contribute discussion 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: ‘Epenthesis’, featuring:

- Iris Berent (Northeastern University)
- Nancy Hall (California State University, Long Beach)
- Christian Uffmann (University of Duesseldorf)
- And others to be confirmed

Call for Papers:

This mentions only a few details. Please consult the website for full information:

There is no obligatory conference theme for the 22mfm. Abstracts can be submitted on anything phonological.

We are using the LINGUIST List’s Easy Abstracts system for abstract submission. Abstracts should be uploaded to the 22mfm’s page on the Easy Abstracts site by 10 February 2014:

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 early 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:
