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, on 30 November and 1 December 2020. This year, because of the spread of covid-19, we will be hosting the meeting as an ONLINE EVENT.

Note that the times indicated on the programme are Denmark time.

The conference programme, complete with abstracts, is here. The programme is clickable: click the main title to enter the Zoom room of the main portion of the conference (conference minus workshops).

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. See the title and blurb of Amalia’s workshop here, and Adrian’s workshop here

The conference will be help on Zoom. This year, the conference will feature oral presentations only; these should be 15 minutes each, with 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Separate Zoom rooms will be allocated to workshops and talks, and, in addition, there will be a “social” room for virtual coffee/tea and lunch breaks.
