Meeting Description:

Workshop on Geminate Consonants across the World

Geminate consonants are found in many languages around the world including, but not restricted to, Arabic, Bengali, Berber, Finnish, Italian, Japanese, Saami, and Swiss German. Yet, their phonetic manifestation and phonological nature are not fully understood, much less their cross‐linguistic similarities and differences. For example, some languages shorten pre‐geminate vowels, whereas other languages lengthen pre‐geminate vowels. The aim of this workshop is to bring together scholars interested in geminate consonants to discuss a singleton/geminate contrast from multiple perspectives—phonetic, phonological, morphological and typological. The workshop will consist of two parts: an oral session featuring invited talks and a poster session for which abstracts are solicited from scholars around the world.
