ExAPP 2013 Experimental Approaches to Perception and Production of Language Variation University of COPENHAGEN March 20-22, 2013
Variability in linguistic behavior is studied in all branches of linguistics. While the approaches may differ in the objectives for studying language variation, they all benefit from incorporating the systematic manipulation of linguistic phenomena in the study of linguistic behavior. The study of the many kinds of variation that can be found in spontaneous speech can help to extend current models of speech production and speech perception, as well as shed light on the study of language change
Plenary speakers Mirjam Ernestus (Radboud University Nijmegen) Stefan Grondelaers (Radboud University Nijmegen) Oliver Niebuhr (Christian-Albrecht-University, Kiel) Antonella Sorace (University of Edinburgh)

Categories and Gradience: Neural Systems for Speech Communication
University of Cambridge, 26 June 2012 http://www.ling.cam.ac.uk/cgworkshop/
We are delighted to announce a one-day workshop on Neural Systems for Speech Communication to be held at the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics, University of Cambridge, UK, on the 26th June 2012. The focus of the workshop is on representations and neural mechanisms for segmentation, abstraction, and categorisation in speech processing.
Our invited speakers are * Kai Alter (University of Newcastle) * Matt Davis (MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, Cambridge) * Aditi Lahiri (University of Oxford)
The workshop is intended to provide a forum for discussion between researchers who approach the neurocognitive processing of suprasegmental and segmental information in speech from different intellectual contexts (notably linguistics, audition, language psychology, and cognitive neuroscience), and with different methodologies.
* Workshop format
A number of key papers will explore the theme of the workshop from different angles, complemented by poster presentations that add breadth or depth to the discussion. The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion with the invited speakers and the audience towards the end of the day. The discussion will explore commonalities and differences in theoretical and methodological approaches and their findings, trying to work towards a synthesis.
* Registration On-line registration is now open! (http://www.ling.cam.ac.uk/cgworkshop/Registration.html)

* Organisers Brechtje Post, Emmanuel Stamatakis, Francis Nolan, Bettina Beinhoff, Hae-Sung Jeon, Toby Hudson
This workshop is funded by the ESRC grant ‘Categories and Gradience in Intonation: Evidence from Linguistics and Neurobiology’ (RES-061-25-0347; PI Post, CI Stamatakis).
