Phonology Reading Group

Welcome to the collaborative, online reading group. 

The reading group will meet every Monday between 14.00 and 16.00 on zoom.

In this semester, we will focus on familiarising us with the projects of the participants and discussing their progress. Additionally, the participants will take turns leading the discussion on  a paper connected to his or her field of study to read. 

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