Manchester Phonology Meeting
With a special session entitled
featuring Ellen Broselow, Charles Chang and Ellen Simon
Moraic vs. X-Slot Syllabification: The Debate
organised by Bjoern Koehnlein and Shanti Ulfsbjorninn.
The conference will be located just south of the city centre and will be easily accessible by public transport or on foot. Last year, the conference costs (including general conference costs, coffee and biscuits, midday and evening meals, but not accommodation) was GBP 190.00, with a reduction to GBP 95.00 for students and unwaged participants. We expect to charge comparable but maybe somewhat higher fees this year.
If you would like to get a feeling for the conference series, you could take a look at the website for last year's 27mfm, and at the mfm homepage, which includes lots of information about the mfm conference series.
- Abstracts should be uploaded to the 28mfm's page on the the
Linguist List's EasyAbstracts site by or on 9th January 2020. The precise
deadline, as implemented by EasyAbstracts, is as follows:
11.59pm US Eastern Standard Time on 9th January.
- The website for uploading abstracts is here: http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/28mfm.
- Please submit your abstract in pdf format, with fonts embedded
necessary, we can accept Word or txt files, but please send pdf if
- Abstracts should be no longer than one side of A4 (or 'American letter'), with 2.5cm or one inch margins, single-spaced, with a font size no smaller than 12, and with normal character spacing. All examples and references in the abstract should be included on the one single page, but it is enough, when referring to previous work, to cite "Author (Date)" in the body of the abstract - you do not need to give the full reference at the end of the abstract. Please DO NOT submit an abstract if it goes over one page for any reason - it will be rejected. Remember also that, if you abstract is accepted, you will need to submit a version with your name and email address, and this will still need to only take up one page - please bear this in mind and leave space for this when finalising your abstract.
- Your abstract should be anonymous. You will be asked to submit a version with your name and affiliation on it if your abstract is selected for presentation. Please make sure that you do not use your name in the filename for your abstract, and please erase any details which might identify you in the file that you submit.
- If you need to use a phonetic font in your abstract, please either embed it in a pdf file, or use the Doulos SIL font, which can be downloaded for free from this site: http://software.sil.org/doulos/.
- You may
opt to present your work either
as a talk or a poster or as a poster only. These are the only
two categories available. The category 'either talk or poster' is the default,
and if you opt for this we will assume that you would rather present
your work as a talk - we will award a talk slot to the abstracts in
this category which we judge likely to offer the best programme. The
poster sessions have always been a great success at mfms and we give
high profile. Some work is best presented as a poster, so you may
specify that you would only like to be considered for a poster.
- No-one may submit more than one single-authored abstract, as this allows more people to take part in the conference. You may submit one single-authored abstract and one jointly-authored abstract (or two jointly-authored abstracts), but it is unlikely that anyone will be offered two opportunities to speak.
- If you need any unusual technical equipment for a talk, you will need to let the organisers know if your abstract is selected for presentation. We will do our best to provide it, but this cannot be guaranteed. We expect to provide data projection facilities (but there will be no technical support for this).
All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by four members of the organising committee and advisory board. You can read about the abstract selection process here. If you cannot send your abstract in the way set out above, for whatever reason, please email email@example.com and we'll arrange another way of abstract submission.
you would like to see which kinds of abstracts have been successful in
the past, you could consult last year's abstract booklet, available here.
Short abstracts are rarely successful as they typically do not include
enough information to judge their worth. A good abstract indicates
what the data and/or problem or issue is clearly and does not just
analysis, but sets out what it is.
