Call for Papers: Journées FLORAL-(I)PFC 2019: French in the World

Since 2002, the international research programme PFC (Phonologie du français contemporain/ Phonology of Contemporary French,, which gathers an international panel of linguists working on French corpus phonology, yearly organises a conference in Paris. The objective of this meeting is to move forward French phonology in a welcoming and scientifically critical atmosphere. It is thus a meeting place for researchers, both junior and senior ones, who wish to discuss their ongoing work – whether it focuses on phenomena well-known or little known in the scientific literature. The PFC programme, primarily devoted to phonology, has in the last few years
been extended to cover other domains of linguistics, i.e. syntax and sociolinguistics, leading to a collaboration with the Laboratoire Ligérien de Linguistique de l’Université d’Orléans, and the creation of a research network on oral French: FLORAL (Français Langue Orale et Recherches Avancées en Linguistique/Oral French and Advanced Studies in Linguistics). PFC further focuses on interphonology and the pedagogical aspects of pronunciation through the daughter project IPFC (Interphonologie du français contemporain/ Interphonology of Contemporary French,
The conference “Journées FLORAL-(I)PFC 2019” is organised around two main topics:
  1. Francophonie and phonologies in contact
  2. Interphonology and didactics of oral French
The format of the contributions will be 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion. Other formats can be considered all depending on the number of abstracts received. We accept presentations in French and English.
The abstract (1 page including title and references) must be sent by email to Helene N. Andreassen (, Elissa Pustka ( and Isabelle Racine (
Submission deadline: Monday 16 September 2018.
