Extended Deadline: 16th of April, 2010
The Phonlex project (From Phonology to the Lexicon: liaison and cognition in
contemporary French) brings together 4 linguistic and psycholinguistic
research teams in Toulouse, Grenoble and Paris. These teams have been
investigating various dimensions of French liaison: phonological and
phonetic aspects, regional variation, the synchronic and diachronic
dimension, oral developmental issues as well as liaison in written production.
These topics will constitute the core of our conference. However, French
liaison is not an isolated sandhi phenomenon within the languages of the
world and we therefore welcome papers which discuss the wider issue of
word-segmentation and adjustments at word-boundaries.
