Linguistic Field(s): Phonology
We are pleased to announce the plans for our 20th Manchester
Phonology Meeting (20mfm). The mfm is the UK's annual phonology
conference, with an international set of organisers. It is held in late
May every year in Manchester (central in the UK, and with excellent
international transport connections). The meeting has become a key
conference for phonologists from all over the world, where anyone
who declares themselves to be interested in phonology can submit an
abstract on anything phonological in any phonological framework. In
an informal atmosphere, we discuss a broad range of topics, including
the phonological description of languages, issues in phonological
theory, aspects of phonological acquisition and implications of
Special Session: 'Unsolved Problems in Phonology'
The fact that the mfm is celebrating its twentieth anniversary has
encouraged us to take stock of what phonology has achieved - and
how much it has really progressed - in recent decades. We have
therefore decided that the topic of the Special Session at the 20mfm
will be 'Unsolved Problems in Phonology', and we have invited
speakers to discuss a key puzzle for phonological theory. We have
asked them to focus on problems for which there once was a solution
that commanded widespread agreement within the phonological
community, but where such consensus has since, for one reason or
another, collapsed. In this sense, we are interested in how a 'solved'
problem can become 'unsolved', with all that this implies for questions
such as the causes of agreement and disagreement in the phonological
community, and the extent of progress in phonological research. And,
of course, we have chosen problems that we believe are all interesting
in their own right.
