Phonology Reading Group

Institute for Linguistics, Leipzig University



We meet every week to discuss recent and/or important work in phonology. Most of the time we agree on a paper that we all read and then discuss, but we also include talks/discussions about our own work in progress.

Mondays, 17:15, H1 5.16, GWZ

Anyone is welcome to join us!
