Subject:  Generative metrics




                     SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

             RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN GENERATIVE METRICS
                         October 8-9, 1999
                 University of Toronto, Canada
         Invited speaker: Paul Kiparsky (Stanford University)

Generative metrics is a branch of generative phonology which focuses
on the formulation of rules or constraints operative in verse, and
thus aims to explain poets' intuitions about metrical
well-formedness. There have been many developments in the field since
the publication of Kiparsky and Youman's (1989) book, 'Rhythm and
Meter'. Particularly, following the emergence of Optimality Theory
(Prince and Smolensky 1993), there have appeared many analyses of
verse employing constraints. Constraints have also been used to model
statistical tendencies in verse (Hayes and MacEachern 1998).

We invite abstracts for 20-minute talks dealing with any aspect of the
field of generative metrics. Possible issues include, but are not
limited to, the following:

 - Should generative metrics model statistical preferences, and what is
   the best way of capturing them?
 - What are the limitations of the model, and what unique insights does it
   offer to the analysis of verse?

 Submit a one page abstract, preferably by e-mail to

                 metrics at chass.utoronto.ca

If you would like to submit by regular mail, please send 5 anonymous
copies of an abstract to:

                 Nila Friedberg
                 Dept. of Linguistics
                 University of Toronto
                 130 St.George Street, Room 6076
                 Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5S 3H1

On a separate card indicate your name,affiliation, address, e-mail
address, and title of the talk. Also, please indicate if you are a
graduate student.

 DEADLINE for receit of abstracts:       June 25, 1999

We plan to publish selected papers from the conference in an edited
volume.

 If you have any questions, please contact:

 Nila Friedberg  <nfriedbe at chass.utoronto.ca>
