Phonology Reading Group

Welcome to the collaborative, online reading group. 

Starting September 7th 202o, the reading group will meet every Monday between 14.00 and 16.00 on zoom.

This semester, we will start out reading works concerning onset clusters. A detailed reading list will be developed throughout the course of our discussions to reflect the interests of the participants. 

If you wish to participate in the meetings or wish to be included in the mailing list, please contact the organisers Anna Katharina Pilsbacher or Tor Håvard Solhaug. Everyone interested in phonological matters is welcome!
