Cambridge Language Sciences

Interdisciplinary Research Centre

Phonetics and Phonology in Europe brings together researchers interested in all areas of phonetics and phonology, with a special focus on the relationship between the two. The intrinsically interdisciplinary nature of most current research in these areas has always been reflected in the conference programme, with speakers from a wide variety of disciplines including historical linguistics, language typology, neurolinguistics, language acquisition, cognitive psychology, and speech technology.

This installment of the conference will be the first to be hosted outside the Iberian Peninsula where it was originally established a little over 10 years ago (as Phonetics and Phonology in Iberia).

Confirmed keynote speakers:
Maria Josep Solé, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

Sarah Hawkins, University of Cambridge

David House, KTH Stockholm

Satellite workshops will be held on 28 June 2015.
