Linguistic Field(s): Phonology; Writing Systems

Call Deadline: 01-Mar-2015

Meeting Description:

The French Phonology Network is launching a call for papers for its 2015 annual conference. The 2015 edition will take place from 29 June to 2 July 2015 at the Université Bordeaux Montaigne in Bordeaux, France.

We are pleased to announce that our keynote speakers will be:

- Jean-Pierre Chevrot (Un. Grenoble 3)
- Jean Lowenstamm (Un. Paris Diderot)
- Timothy Vance (National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics, Tokyo)

Thematic Session:

The chosen topic for this year’s thematic session is “phonology and writing”.

Rendaku Workshop:

A post-conference workshop on Japanese phonology focussing on rendaku (‘sequential voicing’) will be held right after the RFP meeting on July 2, in joint organization with the NINJAL (National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics, Tokyo).

Call for Papers:

We invite submissions to the 13th RFP for both oral and poster presentations. Oral presentations will be scheduled for 35-minute time slots (25 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion).

The organizers want to emphasize the fact that poster submissions should not be considered as less prestigious than oral presentations. The decision to present an oral communication or a poster should depend on the type of issues and results that are presented.

Main Session:

Submissions are welcomed from linguists working in any school or theoretical framework. Topics of interest may relate to phonology in general or propose a phonological analysis of a linguistic phenomenon in a specific language. Topics may focus on, but are not limited to, signal processing, perception, acquisition, diachrony, dialectology, formalism, epistemology, descriptive phonology and all issues which explicitly deal with phonology and its interfaces.

Abstract Submission and Review:

Abstracts can be written in either French or English. Abstracts should not exceed two pages in length (A4 pages, Times New Roman or similar, 12 point), including all examples, figures and references. Authors are requested to indicate in their abstract whether the paper is submitted for an oral or poster communication. PDF abstracts should be submitted using the EasyChair platform at the following address:

All abstracts will undergo anonymous review by at least two referees.

Important Dates:

Call for papers: 30 November 2014
Deadline for submission: 1 March 2015
Notification of acceptance: Mid-April 2015
Final abstract submission: 1 June 2015
RFP Conference: 29 June - 1 July 2015
