Call for papers for the workshop
Controversial issues in Polish phonetics and phonology
which will be part of the 35th Poznan Linguistic Meeting to be held in Poznan, Poland, 18-20 May 2004.
The workshop will bring together phoneticians and phonologists interested in the phonetic realizations and the underlying representations of Polish speech sounds. Current controversial topics in this field include, e.g.:
the classification of the post-alveolar fricatives as palato-alveolar or retroflex;
the phonological interpretation of secondarily palatalized labials as underlying one or two segments;
the nature of the secondarily palatalized post-alveolar, is it palatalized throughout and thus identical to the alveolo-palatal or a palato-alveolar with a palatal off-glide;
the classification of palatalized velar stops as secondarily palatalized or palatal segments.
Although the focus of the workshop is placed on segmental phenomena, other controversial issues of Polish phonetics and phonology are also welcome for discussion.
We are also pleased to announce that Prof. Wiktor Jassem will be our discussant.
Organizers are Silke Hamann and Marzena Zygis (both ZAS Berlin, Germany).
Please submit a one-paged abstract (including references) as word document or pdf. Do not use any other phonetic fonts than SIL Doulos (available under http://www.sil.org/computing/fonts/encore-ipa.html). Send the abstract as attachment to the following email address:
