Redefining Elicitation: Novel Data in Phonological Theory, Apr. 9 - 11, 2004


April 9 – April 11, 2004

In recent years, new approaches to data acquisition and data analysis have raised questions about the nature of phonological representations and the organization of the phonological component of the grammar. Such approaches include data acquired by acoustic and articulatory methodologies, first and second language acquisition, computer simulations, and large corpora. As a result, many traditional problems in phonological theory can now be seen in a new light. The goal of the workshop is to explore novel kinds of data and the ways in which they can inform phonological theory.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Arto Anttila, New York University
  • Marie-Hélène Côte, University of Ottawa
  • Lisa Davidson, New York University
  • Stefan Frisch, University of South Florida
  • Diamandis Gafos, New York University
  • Elliott Moreton, University of North Carolina
  • Joe Pater, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
  • Marianne Pouplier, University of Maryland
  • Jie Zhang and Yuwen Lai, University of Kansas
  • Kie Zuraw, UCLA

Workshop Schedule

All talks will be held in Silver 405. The Silver Center is located at 100 Washington Square East. For more information on the NYU campus and how to arrive at the buildings, please use the Interactive Campus Map. See also the NYU Campus Information page.

Please allow some extra time to get upstairs. Upon arrival, non-NYU attendees will have to sign-in with security. Be prepared to show picture identification to the guard. This is separate from the workshop registration, which is on the 4th floor.
