Meeting Description:


Due to the global COVID-19 situation, the organizers regret to announce that the 6th Workshop on Sound Change, originally scheduled for July 14-16, 2021, will be postponed until 2022. We will publicize a new date in Spring 2021.

Original Conference Posting:

Despite the tremendous advance in the field in the past few decades, our theoretical understanding of sound change has been largely limited to segmental phenomena. The 6th Workshop on Sound Change (WSC6) will be held at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok during July 14-16, 2021 around the theme of ''Naturalness of Tonal and Prosodic change.'' In addition to oral and poster presentations, WCS6 will feature a series of half and full-day satellite workshops on July 13, 2021.

WSC6 is organized by the Department of Linguistics, and the Southeast Asian Linguistics Research Unit, Faculty of Arts, Chulalongkorn University in collaboration with ''The Emergence and Evolution of Linguistic Tone'' project (funded by the European Research Commission).
