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.

See our preliminary programme here.

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 two workshops on sound topics. Our two keynote speaker, Amalia Arvaniti and Adrian Simpson, will be leading these workshops. More detail to follow.

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 closed on 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.
