Kersti is down under for the International Conference on Historical Linguistics (ICHL)24 and the 24th International LFG Conference (LFG2019) in Canberra. She’s killing two conferences with one long-haul trip, which seems only prudent.  Both conferences feature plenaries from Manchester linguists. Nigel Vicent gave a plenary at ICHL on ‘The diachrony of control… and the control of diachrony’, […]

They are attending ICAME (don’t ask) 40, whose theme is ‘Language in Time, Time in Language’.

Comments Off on LEL postgrads at FiNo and PhilSoc forum

Manchet has admittedly let slip in reporting the conference pursuits of the LEL phon/phon postgrads, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t been keeping busy. The recent Fonologi i Norden (FiNo) workshop in Edinburgh saw a good Manchester representation. Donald Morrison presented a talk on ‘Metrical structure in Scottish Gaelic: Tonal accent, glottalization and overlength’, whereas […]
