Meeting Description:

Variation in the Acquisition of Sound Systems
Workshop at the Linguistic Institute 2013: Universality and Variability
University of Michigan
Friday, June 28, 2013

Co-sponsored by:

New York University Department of Linguistics
Northwestern Department of Linguistics

What is the role of variability in how sound systems are acquired or changed? This workshop examines this topic from a number of different phonetic, phonological, and psycholinguistic perspectives, including child language acquisition, non-native production and perception, sound change, and phonotactic learning. The workshop will be held on one day, including invited 1 hour talks and a poster session.

Tentative Titles for Oral Presentations:

Lisa Davidson (New York University): Signal variability and phonetic detail in the production of non-native phonotactics 
Matt Goldrick (Northwestern University): Abstraction and the acquisition of variable phonotactic patterns 
Bob McMurray (University of Iowa): Variability and the emergence of abstraction from basic learning principles: Evidence from early word learning and reading 
Katherine White (University of Waterloo): Coping with phonetic variation in early word recognition 
Alan Yu (University of Chicago): Cross-individual variation in speech perception and production

Call for Posters:

We invite submission of abstracts reporting computational, experimental, neurobiological, and grammar-based research on the role of variation in sound system acquisition and change.  

Abstracts should be a one-page .pdf file, formatted at minimum 12-point single-spaced with 1 inch margins. Tables, graphs and references can be on a separate page. Abstracts must be submitted electronically to lsa2013-workshop at ling.northwestern.edu.  Deadline for submissions: March 15, 2013.

Accepted abstracts will be posted to the workshop website.
