Meeting Description:

Non-adjacent dependencies between segments, the treatment of phonological processes that apply at a distance have always been a challenge and a central issue in phonological theory.

This workshop will provide a forum for discussing controversies and recent developments in the analysis of long distance segmental phenomena focussing on vowel harmony, consonant harmony, and consonant-vowel harmony.

Invited speakers: Laura Downing and Andrew Nevins
