Works in the Works: The Phonologist’s Craft—and Obligation

February 8, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A talk by Ann Delilkan

After determining the number of meaning-creating sounds (also known as ‘phonemes’) in a language, generative phonologists aim to formulate the abstract rules understood by native speakers that govern how those sounds combine to generate words. In this presentation, I describe a set of such rules and outline the empirical testing that must follow their formulation, for them to have both scientific validity and real world value.

All Welcome.
