Conference on Laboratory Phonology

LabPhon17, the biennial conference of the Association for Laboratory Phonology, will be held July 6–8, 2020 at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC in Canada, with satellite workshops being hosted on July 5 and July 9.


The theme of the conference is:

Laboratory Phonology on the Margins

Not every speaker, community, or data point is at the peak of a distribution. Many communities, individuals, and phenomena are on the tails. The theme of this LabPhon is on these tails, these empirical phonological phenomena that are often understudied and overlooked in data collection and theoretical frameworks. Our phonological theories need to be informed by these understudied patterns, and we seek contributions to the conference that address these patterns and populations that are often left on the margins.
