LabPhon15: Speech Dynamics and Phonological Representation
July 13-16, 2016, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY USA

Phonological representations are dynamic, shaped by forces on diverse timescales. On the timescale of utterances, interactions between perceptual, motoric, and memory-related processes provide constraints on phonological representations. These same processes, embedded in learning systems and dynamic social networks, shape representations on developmental and life-span timescales, and in turn influence sound systems on historical timescales. Laboratory phonology, through its rich quantitative and experimental methodologies, contributes to our understanding of phonological systems by providing insight into the mechanisms from which representations emerge.

Congratulations to Chelsea Sanker!
