Phonology PGRs out and about

Posted on January 21, 2016 by

It’s early days yet for 2016, but LEL’s ever-dynamic phon-phon PhD students have already been flying the flag for the department at various international conferences!

A team of Mancunians (Ricardo Bermúdez-Otero, Maciej Baranowski, George Bailey and alum Danielle Turton) presented at OCP 13 in Budapest on A constant rate effect in Manchester /t/-glottalling last week, while Deepthi Gopal presented a solo paper on Nasal-lateral assimilations as Agreement-by-Correspondence.

Meanwhile, Fernanda Barrientos will be presenting some of her research into L2 vowel perception at Sound to Word 2016 this April.

There’s nothing that displays the division in quite such a good light as a thriving community of up-and-coming researchers making their mark on the wider world. Manchet congratulates Deepthi, Fernanda, George, and all involved!
