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.
