Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the Twenty-Third Manchester Phonology Meeting (23mfm). 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: ‘Syllables’, featuring:

- Marie-Helene Cote (University of Ottawa)
- Adamantios Gafos (University of Potsdam)
- Bridget Samuels (Pomona College)
- Peter Szigetvari (Eotvos Lorand University)

NB: There will also be a FRINGE workshop on the afternoon of Wednesday 27 May, timed to coincide with the mfm, entitled 'W(h)ither OT?' - details of this can be found here:

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