Phonetics and Phonology 2020

The phonetics and phonology research group at AU are organising the second meeting of speech sound researchers in Denmark, and of people working on Danish. This year, because of the spread of covid-19, we will be hosting the meeting as an ONLINE EVENT.

The Phonetics and Phonology in Denmark (PPDK) meetings are meant as a forum for exchanging ideas (and sparking new research collaborations), as well as contributing to a more tight-knit research community in Denmark. As with the 2018 instalment of PPDK, this year’s meeting will include one or more workshops on sound topics. For now, we have one workshop planned, hosted by our keynote speaker, Amalia Arvaniti. This workshop will be a practical introduction to conducting intonation research.

The meeting will take place on 30 November and 1 December 2020. Presentations will be accepted on any language, as well as on theoretical and applied aspects of phonetics and phonology. We welcome abstracts from both staff and students. Abstract submission opened on 20 May, and abstracts should be submitted via EasyChair before 1 August. Abstracts should be a maximum of 500 words long, written in single spaced Times New Roman, and be submitted as a pdf file. Submission will be carried out through EasyChair (see the submission link below). Notifications of acceptance will be sent out in October 2020.
