Gopal and Nichols at OCP

Posted on February 23, 2017 by



LEL PhD students Deepthi Gopal and Stephen Nichols were in Düsseldorf this week for the Old World Conference on Phonology 2017, presenting a paper on Sonorant-conditioned mid vowel lowering in Turkish.

They were joined by Yang Li, an alumnus of our BA English Language programme (2013), now a PhD student at Cambridge. His talk was on Complete and incomplete neutralisation in Fuzhou tone sandhi.

Kudos to all involved for pushing back the limits of our knowledge!
