Meeting Description:

After two successful editions, respectively in 2012 (Cortona) and 2013 (Pisa), the 3rd International Workshop on Phonotactics and Phonotactic Modeling (PPM 2015), will take place at the University of Vienna (Zentrum für Translationswissenschaft) on November 26-27, 2015.

The workshop aims at providing an informal atmosphere for discussion on experimental and theoretical aspects of phonotactics and phonotactic modeling in a cross-linguistic perspective.

This year the workshop will cover in particular the theme of the ‘interfaces’:

(i) The phonotactics/morphology interface
(ii) The phonotactics/phonetics interface

Invited Speakers:

Harald Baayen (University of Tübingen)
Wim van Dommelen (Norwegian University of Science and Technology)
Marianne Pouplier (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München)
