The workshop follows the inaugural and highly successful Workshop on Sound Change held in Barcelona in October 2010. This 2nd Workshop on Sound Change is organized by Jonathan Harrington and Mary Stevens (Institute of Phonetics and Speech Processing, Munich). Our goal is to continue to examine aspects of sound change from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. For this second workshop, oral presentations are organized around the following specific themes:

  •     Coarticulation, the listener & sound change
  •     Social/dialect factors & sound change
  •     Imitation, entrainment & sound change
  •     Language acquisition & sound change
  •     Evolutionary models of sound change
  •     Computational modeling of sound change
  •     Phonology and sound change

The workshop consists of invited talks, discussion sessions and poster sessions. Abstracts describing empirical research on sound change are welcomed for poster presentation at the workshop. Invited speakers include:
