Call for Papers
The 4th Workshop on Sound Change will be held at the University of Salamanca, Spain, on Friday, October 18, 2019. 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 lexical and social diffusion mechanisms. Experimental and descriptive evidence calls for the need to develop better models of sound change which incorporate data on articulatory and acoustic variation and on how phonetic variability leading eventually to sound change is shaped by linguistic and social structures. The major contributions to the three 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.
-D. Recasens & F. Sánchez-Miret, eds., Production and Perception Mechanisms of Sound Change, München, Lincom Europa, 2018.
In addition to several oral presentations, a poster session will be held during the one-day workshop.
We invite submission of abstracts for poster presentation. Abstracts may report experimental and/or descriptive data on sound change dealing preferably with one or several Romance languages. They should not exceed one page (tables, graphs and references can be on a separate page), and should be submitted electronically as a .pdf file to firstname.lastname@example.org before December 31st 2018.
The following invited speakers have confirmed their participation at the workshop with oral presentations:
- Giovanni Abete (University of Naples)
