Meeting Description:

The principle behind phonological computation in spoken language is the same
as phonological computation in signed language: Small, meaningless units
combine and make meaningful words. Crucially, this computation occurs
spontaneously and independently in both signed and spoken language (Berent
2013). In recent years, research on the acquisition of phonology has opened up
new avenues for understanding how such a system can arise. Moreton, Pater, &
Pertsova (2015) argue that phonological and visual learning problems are
solved in analogous ways, and that the same cognitive processes are available
to both types of learning. Much of our knowledge about how phonology is
acquired by infants comes from experimental work. Cristia (2018) analyses this
research and challenges many of the conclusions of previous work on this area,
which means that our understanding of phonological acquisition has to be

Understanding how phonology is learned provides new insight into how different
modalities of language can behave in similar ways, and understanding the
relationship between signed and spoken language phonology can shed light on
the interaction of different cognitive domains (such as visual and auditory
perception). Such research also aids in deciding which formal mechanisms are
required to compute phonological symbols. The aim of the workshop is to bring
together researchers on phonological acquisition, sign-language phonology and
phonological learning in general.

Call for Papers:

Suggested topics include (but are not limited to): phonological learning,
acquisition of phonology, sign-language phonology, phonology and cognition,
perception/production and cognition.

Please submit abstracts via EasyChair (see link and guidelines for the GLOW 42
main colloquium https://glowlinguistics.org/42/call-for-papers/).
