WELCOME TO THE CUNY PHONOLOGY FORUM WEBSITE!
The CUNY Phonology Forum is devoted to the promotion of healthy discussion and fruitful pursuit of foundational questions in phonology. Toward that end, the Forum, in partnership with the , organizes conferences and makes the ideas and information developed in them available to the scholarly community. Since its inception in 2003, the Forum has organized six such conferences, the most recent of which was in January 2010. The results of all but the most recent of these are available on this web site, as described below. We are now preparing the page for the CUNY Conference on the Word, which was held January 14 - 16, 2010. The CUNY Conference on Phonology of Endangered Languages is planned for January 12-14, 2011.
One of the Forum's strategies for developing useful discussions is to organize conferences around specific topics within phonology, and to invite and encourage participation from scholars who look at each topic from a variety of perspectives. For example, the January 2007 conference addressed precedence relations (i.e., any aspect of temporal or sequential relationships) among phonological elements; there were presentations in several subdivisions of cognitive science, such as formal linguistics, language acquisition, neurolinguistics, psychology, etc. The conferences are organized so as to attract scholars whose ideas are broadly within the penumbra of the topic of each conference. The goal is to explore some specific aspect of phonology as broadly and deeply as possible.
These conferences are held at the CUNY Graduate Center in Manhattan and typically take place late in the week before Martin Luther King day, which is always the third Monday in January.
