                         CONFERENCES, COURSES, CALLS


The Department of English Grammar and Phonetics, University of Lodz, Poland
is pleased to announce the third conference on Native and Non-native Accents
of English - 'Accents 2009'. 'Accents' is an annual conference continuing the
tradition of earlier meetings of researchers and teachers of phonetics,
phonology and EFL interested in the issue of accent in English spoken as a
native or non-native language. The main theme of this year's conference is
accent variability in time and space. We invite papers in this area, however
we hope to continue the discussion of other issues, including the following:

    * variability in native accents of English
    * variability in non-native accents of English
    * the native- non-native accent continuum
    * the norm / reference accents in EFL
    * the use and acquisition of English speech by non-native speakers
    * socio-phonetics
    * methodology of accent studies
    * pedagogical implications

http://www.filolog.uni.lodz.pl/accents2009/ ACCENTS at uni.lodz.pl



January 14th-16th, 2010, at the CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue,
New York City, 10016

For more information, visit http://www.cunyphonologyforum.net/word.php.

We invite oral and poster presentations from any subdivision of cognitive
science such as formal linguistics, language acquisition, neurolinguistics,
poetics, philosophy, psychology, etc. We also encourage diversity in methods,
so we welcome both formal and experimental approaches to the topic of the
word in phonology.

The following list of questions is meant to be suggestive and provocative. In
fact the organizers wish to open the field of discussion to all matters
related to the nature of the word in phonology and/or phonetics.

Is the word a valid concept?

Is the word the same entity as the phonological word?

Is the word hierarchically superordinate to feet and/or syllables?

What is the internal structure of the word?

What principles determine word structure?

What aspects of the word are relevant to rhyme and meter?

How do psycholinguistic processes interact with the linguist's word?

How do morphological and phonological rules/constraints refer to the word?

Does the word exist at different levels of phonology and phonetics?


Nigel Fabb, University of Strathclyde, "The linguistics of surprise."
Alec Marantz, New York University, "Deconstructing Words."
Adam Ussishkin, University of Arizona, "Words and Roots in Semitic:
           psycholinguistic evidence for multiple factors in lexical access."

Abstracts for oral or poster presentations should consist of a one page
description (12pt font) with a second page for references, data and/or
illustrations. Please specify whether it is a proposal for a poster or an
oral presentation, or potentially either. Although we will make every effort
to honor authors' requests, the criterion for assigning a proposal to either
the oral or the poster format is simply whether the subject matter is better
suited for one or the other mode of presentation. Abstracts should be emailed
as an attachment (PDF format) to [log in to unmask] no later than
midnight, October 18, 2009. Authors should include title of the proposal,
name of the author(s) and affiliation in the body of the email.

is pleased to announce the second international meeting of the phoneticians
of English.

The aim of the event is to bring together researchers who investigate various
aspects of English phonetics and English pronunciation both from the
theoretical and pedagogical perspectives. Papers addressing comparative
issues between English and another language are most welcome.

The official language of the conference is English. The keynote speakers are
Emeritus Professor of Phonetics John Wells, University College London, UK,
and Professor Tatjana Paunovic, University of Ni, Serbia.

                            STUDENTSHIPS, JOBS

The Department of Linguistics at Stockholm University invites
applications for three Ph.D. Studentships in Linguistics with a
specialization in General Linguistics and/or Phonetics, Ref.nr SU
617-2167-09, and a Ph.D. Studentship in Computational Linguistics at
Stockholm University, Sweden, Ref.nr SU 617-2168-09

Three Ph.D Studentships in Linguistics (Ref.nr SU 617-2167-09)

The Department of Linguistics at Stockholm University invites
applications for three four-year studentships within its Ph.D.
programme in Linguistics with a specialization in General Linguistics
and/or Phonetics, with start date January 1, 2010. The thesis project
should involve one or both of the profile areas of the department,
namely, *language typology* (see http://www.ling.su.se/ASV/engelska/
eng-text.html) or *early language acquisition in children.
The deadline for applications is October 29th, 2009. Applications should
be sent by ordinary mail to Stockholms universitet, Registrator/PA, 106
91 Stockholm, Sweden, and should include the following:

1. CV with information about earlier studies, jobs and publications;
2. a copy of written works that are referred to in the application;
3. contact information for two reference persons;
4. a sketch of up to 6,000 words describing a possible thesis project.

Please indicate the reference number Ref.nr SU 617-2167-09 on your

A Ph. D Studentship in Computation Linguistics (Ref.nr SU 617-2168-09)

The Department of Linguistics at Stockholm University invites
applications for a four-year studentship within its *Ph.D. programme in

might also relate to activities within the Userware Laboratory at the
Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS), such as data-oriented
models of semantics. Examples of other such cross-border areas are
symbolic and statistical methods for parsing and computational linguistics
for under-resourced languages.
