PLM2008 Special teach-in session

Natural Phonology: The origin, development and state-of-the art


Organizer: Katarzyna Dziubalska-Kołaczyk

The aim of this special session is to provide a thorough but concise overview of the main assumptions of the theory of Natural Phonology to an audience who have not been introduced to the theory or who need to refresh or expand their knowledge on the topic. The origins and main ‘basics’ of Natural Phonology in the production-perception interaction area will be presented by the founders of the theory themselves, David Stampe and Patricia Donegan. Major European elaboration of the theory will also be introduced by its author, Wolfgang U. Dressler. Some other extensions of the framework will be reported by other followers of Natural Phonology. The highlight of this special session will be exactly the presence of the founders of the theory which will ensure first-hand, authentic and original presentation and interaction.
