Linguistic Field(s): Phonology

Meeting Description:

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.

Registration/booking is now open for the 24mfm. Everyone who would like to attend needs to book and pay in advance. The deadline for booking is 15 May. All details are on the website, which also has a full programme for the conference:
