Meeting Description:

The Edinburgh Symposium on Historical Phonology is a regular conference that takes place every other year (usually in December) at the University of Edinburgh, hosted by the department of Linguistics and English Language and the School of Informatics.

The next symposium is the fifth in the series, taking place (online) in December 2021.

What do we need to consider in order to understand the innovation and propagation of phonological change, and to reconstruct past phonological states? The Fifth Edinburgh Symposium on Historical Phonology will offer an opportunity to discuss fundamental questions in historical phonology as well as specific analyses of historical data.

The symposium is organised under the auspices of the Angus McIntosh Centre for Historical Linguistics and hosted online by the Department of Linguistics and English Language and the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh.

There will be no invited speaker this year, given that the conference will need to be online: we don’t think long online talks work very well. We will be organising some special events during the conference, however, including a forum to discuss fundamental questions in historical phonology, and opportunities for people to chat with each other informally. We will advertise these when the programme is announced.

The conference will take place around 6 December, 2021, with specific dates to be announced later.

Program:

We are delighted to announce that the full details for the upcoming Fifth Edinburgh Symposium on Historical Phonology are now available:

The conference will take place online from 6th-8th December, and registration for non-presenters is now open. There is a link to the registration site on the ESHP5 website. Registration is free and 300 places are available (if more people apply than that, we will allocate places on a first-come-first-served basis).
