Meeting Description:

Organized by Marcel Schlechtweg, Esther Ruigendijk, Bénédicte Grandon & Stephanie Kaucke

The university of Oldenburg is one of the leading sites in hearing research in the world. Within the cluster of excellence Hearing4all, experts from various disciplines (among others, medicine, engineering, computer science, linguistics) and with different foci investigate the facets of hearing with the vision of making auditory stimuli accessible to everyone. For this, we need to improve our understanding of hearing, hearing impairment, and hearing aid technologies.

The meeting ''Hearing and Linguistics'' aims at strengthening and expanding linguistic research in the field of hearing by bringing together researchers who work in this area. Topics from different research traditions and from any linguistic area, including but not limited to phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics, are welcome. We particularly encourage contributions focusing on hearing and its connection to the processing and / or acquisition of language. Here, we invite investigations on, for instance, the impact of hearing loss or impairment on the perception and production of language, the acquisition mechanisms in the presence of hearing deficiency, the development of morpho-syntactic patterns in language users with and / or without hearing impairment, and the detection of fine acoustic detail in individuals with and / or without hearing impairment.

Call for Papers:

Abstracts are written in English, anonymous, and limited to one A4 page (references, figures, tables, and / or examples can appear on a second page; 12pt, Times New Roman, margins of 2.5 cm on all sides, single spacing) and should be submitted to by September 30, 2021. Please submit your abstract as a word and pdf file. In the email, give the title and all authors in the correct order.
