(Oral presentations of 35 minutes each with 10 minutes for discussion.)

The goal of this workshop is to gather phonologists, phoneticians and historical linguists working on the phonetic and phonological factors involved in the inception of sound change and on its diffusion through the lexicon and the linguistic community. Experimental evidence collected during the last decades calls for the need to develop better models of sound change which incorporate data on articulatory and acoustic variation and on the perceptual categorization of acoustic cues. The major contributions to the two previous workshop sessions were published by Lincom Europa in

  • D. Recasens & F. Sánchez Miret & K. Wireback, eds., Experimental Phonetics and Sound Change, München, Lincom Europa, 2010.

  • F. Sánchez Miret & D. Recasens, eds., Studies in Phonetics, Phonology and Sound Change in Romance, München, Lincom Europa, 2013.

 

The official languages of the workshop are Spanish, French, Italian and English.

We intend to publish a selection of the oral and poster presentations during 2016.

 

Workshop venue:

The workshop will be held at the Facultad de Filología, Plaza de Anaya s/n, 37008 Salamanca. (See link)
