Linguistic Field(s): Phonetics; Sociolinguistics

Meeting Description:

Since about 2000, the emergence of multiethnolects has been observed among adolescents in various European cities. While most studies have considered morphosyntactic, lexical or pragmatic characteristics of multiethnolects, this workshop will instead focus on phonetic features, bringing together a number of renowned scholars in this field.

The workshop will take place on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 June 2020 at the University of Zurich (Switzerland). Talks will be 45 minutes to allow for enough room for fruitful discussions (30 minutes presentation & 15 minutes discussion).

The workshop is free of charge but please register by May 20 via E-Mail (
