We are pleased to announce the Twenty-Fifth Manchester Phonology Meeting
(23mfm). 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 phonological change.



There is no conference theme - abstracts can be submitted on anything, but
a special themed session has been organised for Friday afternoon, entitled
'Typology and phonological theory'. This will feature the invited speakers
listed (in alphabetical order) above and will conclude in an open
discussion session when contributions from the audience will be very

* Full papers will last around 25 minutes with around 5 minutes for
questions, and there will be high-profile poster sessions lasting one and a
half hours. When you submit your abstract, you will be asked to indicate
whether you would be prepared to present your work either as a talk or a
poster paper or only as a poster.

* We aim to finalise the programme, and to contact abstract-senders by late
March, and we will contact all those who have sent abstracts as soon as the
decisions have been made.
