Workshop on Phonological Variation in Voicing

Call for Papers, Deadline: 28-Jun-2007

For most phonologists, the process of Final Devoicing, which we can observe 
in languages such as German, Dutch, Yiddish, Russian, Polish, Catalan and 
Turkish, did not deserve a lot of attention. One would write a rule of 
approximately the shape [-son] -> [-voice] / -- #/$, and declare the issue 

However, recent years have seen a revived interest in phenomena surrounding 
devoicing, for a variety of reasons. One of them are developments in the 
formalism, like that of OT. For one thing, it appears much easier to view 
devoicing as a rule than as the result of a constraint. There is no consensus 
yet as to what the constraint should be in OT (e.g. a general constraint 
against voicing *Voiced, dominated by a faithfulness constraint for onsets, 
a conjunction of NoCoda with *Voiced, a positional markedness constraint, 
etc.) and further, Final Devoicing is one of the most famous cases of the 
so-called Too-Many-Solutions Problem: why would the relevant constraint always
be satisfied by deletion of the voicing feature?

Further, lots of empirical work has come out which does not fit very easily 
with classical views of phonology (including most of OT). First, we find 
final devoicing both in languages in which the relevant contrast is indeed 
[voice] (such as Catalan), but also in languages in which it rather involves 
[spread glottis] (like German), which raises the question what these phenomena
have in common from a phonological point of view. Secondly, there is a large 
body of work showing that final devoicing in many cases is not neutralizing 
completely, but that there are phonetic traces of voicing in the acoustic 
signal, and that listeners to some extent can detect these traces at least 
in experimental circumstances. Thirdly, it turns out that whether or not a 
given stem is subject to final devoicing is to a large extent predictable 
given lexical statistics.

Finally, it has become clear over the years that devoicing interacts with 
many other phonological processes in (varieties of) European languages, such 
as voicing assimilation, but also lexical tone. It has been claimed as well 
that certain dialects of French, for instance, have developed interesting 
phonological phenomena as a result of contact with West-Germanic final 
devoicing systems.

The workshop will end in a very big party. Participation (including the 
party) is free. Invited speakers will be Harry van der Hulst (University 
of Connecticut) and Ben Hermans (Meertens Instituut).

Please submit an abstract (2 pages max; does not need to be anonymous; 
pdf file) to [log in to unmask] Deadline: June 28.


Applications of Phonetics and Phonology On Arabic

Conference Program/Announcement

The conference has the following main objectives:

Firstly, to handle issues related to phonetics and phonology Terms, and to 
shed a new light on the contributions of ancient Arab linguists to the 
terminology Pertaining to phonetics and phonology.

Secondly, to focus on the phonological system of The Holy Quran, namely 
Quranic recitations via phonological studies.

Thirdly, to tackle phonological and phonetic phenomena of old and modern 
Arabic dialects.

Fourthly, to study phonetic and phonological changes of Arabic.

Fifthly, to focus on the far reaching effects of rapid technological changes 
on the phonetic study of Arabic, and the resulting demands of computational 
phonetics applications on Arabic.

Sixthly, to analyze the phonetic and phonological systems of Arabic, through 
investigating the correlation between these systems and other linguistic 
systems, such morphological, syntactic, and semantic, on one hand, and 
examining translation, language acquisition, and language learning problems, 
on the other.

Seventhly, to explore the far reaching results of phonetics and phonology on 
applied linguistics fields, such lexicography, phono- stylistics, etc.

We hope that this conference and similar conferences will enrich and bridge 
the Phonetic and phonological Arabic language studies among language studies.

We take a great pleasure in inviting you to participate in making this 
event a success.

The Department of Communicative Disorders of the University of Louisiana at
Lafayette are looking for applicants for their PhD program in Applied
Language and Speech Sciences. Several fully funded studentships are
available for next calendar year (starts January 2009). We are particularly
keen to encourage applicants with an interest in phonetics and phonology,
and with previous qualifications in Speech-Language Therapy or Linguistics.
Applicants should have a good undergraduate degree or a Masters in a relevant 
area. We currently have several overseas students, and applications
are welcomed from candidates from other countries as well as from the United
States; especially from those having been trained in European traditions of

Due to the need to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), interested
persons should contact me as soon as possible. More details on the program

Phonology: Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader, University College London, 
United Kingdom


The Linguistics Research Department at UCL is looking for a phonologist
with a strong commitment to world-class research. The appointment will be
at Lecturer level (equivalent to Assistant Professor) or at Senior
Lecturer/Reader level (equivalent to Associate Professor). The ideal
candidate has some years of postdoctoral experience and a record of
high-quality publications commensurate with the stage of their academic
career. You will contribute to the department's research, teaching,
graduate supervision, and administration.

The Linguistics Research Department has recently become part of a new
Division of Psychology and Language Sciences at UCL, which offers enhanced
opportunities for cross-disciplinary clinical research. The appointment
also follows a move to newly refurbished premises where the infrastructure
exists for the successful applicant to build up their own research team.

Applicants will hold a doctorate in phonology and will be engaged in a
program of original research that enhances the department's research
portfolio and that can give rise to PhD projects and applications for
research funding.

The successful applicant will start work at UCL on 1 September 2009. The
position is a permanent one, with a three-year probationary period
(equivalent to tenure track). The appointment will be made within grade 7
point 33 (30,912 GBP) to grade 9 point 49 (49,606 GBP) plus London 
allowance (2,649), according to experience.

Further information is available at the website listed above.

Informal enquiries can be made to Prof John Harris (+ 44 (0) 20 7679 4042,
