Call for Papers

Hanyang Institute for Phonetics and Cognitive Sciences of Language (HIPCS), together with the Department of English Language and Literature at Hanyang University, launches its first annual international symposium on current issues in phonetics and cognitive sciences of language. Many subphonemic and gradient aspects of speech, whether segmental or suprasegmental, which were once considered to be beyond the speaker’s control, are now understood as part of the linguistic system stipulated by the grammar of a given language. The theme of this year’s symposium is linguistic/cognitive functions of such phonetic granularity in speech production and/or perception in L1 and L2. We invite submissions for the symposium which explore any issues in speech production and perception with some bearings on, though not limited to, the theme of the symposium. There will be some limited slots available for a 20 minute oral presentation with a poster session to accommodate more presentations.
