Meeting Description:

Phonotactic grammar organizes the distribution of phonemes and supra-segmental entities in word-sized strings. It is based on categorical rules and probabilistic constraints in the distribution of segments; phonotactic rules and constraints have been shown to be sensitive to several properties of the language, referring not only to phonetic-phonological principles but also to the morphological structure of words or their frequency of use.

Many psycho-computational models of phonotactic learning have been proposed to account for the development of phonotactic knowledge in the mind of the speaker; they basically induce phonotactic regularities either from segmental properties (such as features and their natural classes), or lexical distributions (such as the information related to the lexical neighborhood of a word), or even a principled balance of both segmental and lexical properties.

This workshop is focused on experimental approaches to phonotactics and phonotactic learning and aims at providing an informal atmosphere for discussion on psychologically and computationally sound models of phonotactic learning and lexical and sub-lexical processing.
