Workshop: Phonological variation ​and its interfaces 

Workshop Phonological variation ​and its interfaces 

http://www.ub.edu/workshop_phonvar

About

Within the research project “Phonetics-phonology-morphology interface phenomena from the perspective of linguistic variation” (FFI2016-76245-C3-3-P), we are organizing a two-day workshop about phonological variation and its interfaces, which will be held at the University of Barcelona the 22 and 23 of November 2018. We specifically seek proposals dealing with phonological variation at the interface with phonetics and morphology, from any empirical and theoretical perspective. Contributions might answer, although not exclusively, to some of the following broad questions:​

  • Is there a factual interface between phonology and phonetics, and between phonology and morphology? Or are these independent components of the grammar? Which are the evidences for one approach or the other?
  • How do these three components interact? Are their interactions unidirectional or rather bidirectional?
  • How does phonological variation shed light on the interfaces phonology-phonetics / phonology-morphology?
  • To which extent morphological requirements constraint phonology and induce phonological variation?
  • Can prosodic requirements have an impact on morphology? What are the limits of this impact?

Invited speakers

Birgit Alber (Università di Verona)
Andries ​Coetzee (University of Michigan)

Call for papers

The workshop will feature talks (20-25 minutes, followed by 10-5 minutes for questions). Abstracts should be submitted through EasyChair (please follow this link to submit your abstract) by June, 1, 2018. All abstracts will be reviewed by 3 anonymous reviewers.

Abstract guidelines

Maximum 1 page of A4 paper, and an extra page for references, examples, tables, and figures.
12 pt Times New Roman font, or similar.
One-inch (2.54 cm) margins on all sides.
Anonymous (please do not include author details).
PDF format.

Abstracts not following these guidelines will be rejected. Abstract submission, reviewing, and notification of acceptance will be handled using EasyChair.

Important dates

Abstract submission deadline: June, 1, 2018
Notification of acceptance: July, 15, 2018
Program announcement: September, 15, 2018
Workshop days: November, 22-23, 2018 (University of Barcelona)

Registration and fees

Registration will be open from the end of September until November, 1, 2018.

ETAP4 deadline May 14th

Submission deadline: May 14, 2018, 11:59 PM AoE (anywhere on earth).

Link to Call for Papers and Submission Website
(https://easychair.org/cfp/ETAP4)

The 4th Experimental and Theoretical Advances in Prosody (ETAP4)
conference will be held from October 11-13, 2018, at the University of
Massachusetts Amherst in Amherst, Massachusetts. This conference
focuses on questions about the production, interpretation, and
characterization of speech prosody, bringing together researchers in
linguistics, psychology, and computer science.

The theme of ETAP4 is “Sociolectal and dialectal variability in
prosody.” As in many language fields, studies of prosody have focused
on majority languages and dialects and on speakers who hold power in
social structures. The goal of ETAP4 is to help diversify prosody
research in terms of the languages and dialects being investigated, as
well as the social structures that influence prosodic variation. The
conference will bring together prosody researchers and researchers
exploring the role of sociological variation in prosody, with a focus
on understudied dialects and endangered languages, and individual
differences based on gender and sexuality. Invited speakers will (i)
raise what questions and areas they think would benefit from prosodic
research, (ii) teach prosody researchers what they need to know to do
research in these areas, and (iii) share insights from their
experience engaging with the public around issues of understudied and
endangered languages, linguistic bias, and intersectionality in
science.

A satellite workshop on African-American English prosody will be held
on October 10, 2018 to bring together participants to contribute
common data sets and discuss the development of shared data resources
and methodological considerations such as challenges in prosodic
transcription. For updates on this workshop, subscribe to the e-mail
list here: https://list.umass.edu/mailman/listinfo/etap4-aae/

We invite submission of abstracts describing work related to the
conference theme as well as topics in prosody more generally from
diverse approaches, including fieldwork, experiments, computational
modeling, theoretical analyses, etc. These topics include:

– Phonology and phonetics of prosody
– Cognitive processing and modelling of prosody
– Tone and intonation
– Acquisition of prosody
– Interfaces with syntax, semantics, pragmatics
– Prosody in natural language processing

In addition to talks from invited speakers, there will be additional
talks, and two poster sessions.

Abstracts for talks and posters must be submitted in a pdf format.
Your abstract must include the submission’s title at the top, and must
not include authors’ names and affiliations, or any identifying
information (i.e., “In Liberman & Pierrehumbert (1984), we
showed…“). Abstracts should be submitted in letter format (8.5″ x
11″ – not A4), with 1-inch margins on all sides, and in Arial 11 point
font. The abstract itself (text) may be no longer than one page; a
second page containing additional figures, tables, other graphics
and/or references may be included.

Call for Papers: Society for Computation in Linguistics

The Society for Computation in Linguistics  invites submissions to its second meeting, SCiL 2019, which will be co-located with LSA 2019 in New York City, January 3-6. The invited speakers, Gaja Jarosz (University of Massachusetts Amherst) and Mark Johnson (Macquarie University) will present talks on the theme “Learning Hidden Linguistic Structure”.

We seek high-quality research on computational and mathematical approaches in any area of linguistics. There will be two submission tracks: papers and abstracts. Accepted papers and abstracts will be presented (either orally or as posters) at the SCiL 2019 meeting. Papers will be published prior to the conference in the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) Anthology. Authors of accepted abstracts will have the option to submit extended abstracts prior to the conference. Both papers and extended abstracts will be published online in the open-access SCiL proceedings.

Submissions are limited to one first-authored paper or abstract per author; there is no limit on the number of non-first authored submissions per author. Do not submit an abstract to both SCiL and the LSA – these meetings are being held jointly, and your submission will be returned without review.

We are considering having a European site in addition to the meeting in New York City. The two sites would meet together via video conferencing for some portion of the meetings, and the Proceedings would be published together. Paris has been suggested as a tentative site. We are currently trying to gauge interest and get feedback on this possibility. If you are interested or have feedback, please fill out this Google Form by June 1: https://goo.gl/forms/Lekn6GasbHyshS6u2.

Important Dates

  • Deadline for feedback on European second site (see above): June 1, 2018
  • Submission Deadline (papers and abstracts): August 1, 2018
  • Notification of Acceptance: mid-September, 2018
  • Camera Ready Papers and Abstracts Due: November 1, 2018
  • Conference: January 3-6, 2019

Submissions

Papers (8pp) and abstracts (2pp) are due August 1 2018 by 11:59pm pacific time.  Papers and abstracts must be anonymous and prepared in PDF format according to the following guidelines.

Papers

Paper submissions must describe original, completed, and unpublished work. They are limited to 8 content pages (plus unlimited pages for references) and should follow the two-column ACL format. Style templates are available from the NAACL website:

Accepted papers will be published in the ACL Anthology prior to the conference, and will be presented either as oral or poster presentations at SCiL 2019. Abstracts and papers will also be published online in the open-access SCiL proceedings.

Abstracts

Abstract submissions must describe original and completed work. To facilitate exchange of research ideas across disciplines, this track will consider work that has been previously presented (and potentially published) at venues with distinct scope and target audiences from SCiL. Submissions describing previously presented/published work must indicate so at submission time.

Abstract length is limited to a maximum of two single-spaced pages (US Letter), figures and references included. The abstract should follow the two-column ACL format OR the following guidelines. Font should be 12-point Times or Times New Roman throughout, and the document should be single-spaced, left justified, with margins of exactly one inch on all sides. Title and section headings (if used) should be bold.

Accepted abstracts will be presented at SCiL 2019 as posters or oral presentations. Authors of accepted abstracts will have the option to extend abstracts up to 4 pages (extended abstracts). The extended abstracts should follow the two-column ACL format. Abstracts and extended abstracts will be published before the conference in the forthcoming open-access SCiL Proceedings.

Submission

To submit your paper or abstract, please proceed to the link below. If you do not already have an EasyChair account, you will need to set one up :

PhonFest: Registration open, submission deadline extended to April 15

Registration is now open for PhonFest 2018, a symposium on phonetic and phonological documentation. 
http://www.indiana.edu/~phonfest/

“Mixing it up: from the lab to the field and back again.”
May 29 – June 2, 2018 ~ Indiana University, Bloomington

Description: While language science is moving in an ever more experimental direction, and tightly controlled experiments in lab settings can generate invaluable information about human language, such studies are not always possible, realistic, or productive in the context of actual language usage. Humans are members of communities, and linguists often work in the field, in communities. Speakers are not just passive consultants, but are members of a language community, agents who ‘do’ the language. The data generated by fieldwork, which is also invaluable, presents its own challenges—including technological challenges, like how to organize and annotate records in order to render them maximally accessible and useful. PhonFest is designed to create a space for dialogue: How can practices from the lab inform our work in the field, and vice versa? How can we pull the best elements from both worlds together to strengthen the work we do? Expert speakers from the US and abroad will address these topics.

Invited speakers:
Cynthia Clopper, The Ohio State University
Christian DiCanio, University at Buffalo
Josef Fruehwald, University of Edinburgh
Marija Tabain, La Trobe University

Dates:
Tues. May 29 – Fri. June 1: Invited speakers present short courses.
Sat. June 2: Conference for Fest participants to present their own work.
Mon. June 4-Thurs. June 7: Incubator week! Designated work time (in a supportive environment) to help propel your work from where it’s at to the next stage.

Learn more at http://www.indiana.edu/~phonfest/Registration rates range from $45 for IU students to $150 for outside professionals. 
 
Abstracts for poster presentations are invited in the following areas: 
·      documentary (acoustic, articulatory, perception, etc.) work on under-resourced languages
·      descriptive and/or sociophonetic analyses of under-resourced languages, under-served populations
·      typologically unusual sounds, contrasts, patterns
·      methodological papers; technical characterizations of novel methodologies
 
Abstract Submission Deadline: April 15, 2018.
