SALT workshop

A cross-disciplinary workshop on syllable structure and sonority

When: May 11-12, 2018

Where: UiT The Arctic University of Norway, Tromsø

In this workshop, we intend to investigate the role of sonority, the sonority hierarchy and the sonority sequencing principle in the internal organization of syllables. The current mainstream theory of syllable organization has often been challenged by language-specific instantiations of the sonority hierarchy or patterns that ignore sonority sequencing or other sonority-based principles of phonotactic organization. We would like to gather together researchers working on typological aspects of syllable phonotactics, its acquisition, and its loss in attrition, as in aphasia for example.

The program of the event is available HERE.


Keynote speakers:

  • Draga Zec
  • Janet Grijzenhout
  • Laura Downing
  • Anna Daugavet

Registration is now open HERE (until May 1st). There is no registration fee for this event.
