Michael Obiri-Yeboah has received a UC San Diego International Institute fellowship for his work on documenting the Gua language. He will spend the summer in Ghana collecting data.
The Linguistics Department is pleased to announce that the 2018 Annual Meeting on Phonology (AMP 2018) will be held on October 5-7, 2018 at UC San Diego. This is the sixth installment of the Annual Meetings on Phonology, following the 2013 inaugural meeting at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and subsequent meetings hosted by MIT, UBC/SFU, USC, and NYU. This year’s conference will feature a fully integrated workshop entitled “Methods in phonological data collection and analysis of underdocumented languages,” with funding provided by the National Science Foundation (BCS-1753985). Workshop-related tutorials will be offered by Bert Remijsen (University of Edinburgh) and UC San Diego’s own Gabriela Caballero and Marc Garellek. The main conference will consist of presentations in all areas of theoretical, experimental, and computational phonology, with funding provided by the Division of Social Sciences. This year’s invited speakers are Junko Ito & Armin Mester (UC Santa Cruz), Laura McPherson (Dartmouth College), and Bert Remijsen (University of Edinburgh), and an additional tutorial will be offered by Jennifer Bellik and Nick Kalivoda (UC Santa Cruz).
Adam’s abstract, “Transparency, locality, and Uyghur backness harmony,” was accepted as a talk at the upcoming 26th Manchester Phonology Meeting (http://www.lel.ed.ac.uk/mfm/26mfm.html).
Marc Garellek (Linguistics, UC San Diego) and Adam Chong (Linguistics, Queen Mary University of London) have recently published a new paper entitled “Online perception of glottalized coda stops in American English” in the journal Laboratory Phonology.

Our graduate students Dayoung Kim and Till Poppels, our postdoc William Matchin, and our faculty members Grant Goodall, Andrew Kehler, and Eva Wittenberg are presenting five posters at the 31st Annual CUNY Sentence Processing Conference at UC Davis on March 15-17, 2018:
Suhas Arehalli and Eva Wittenberg: “The mess reveals the system: People use top-down cues to resolve errors in contexts with highly random noise, but not with highly structured noise”
Dayoung Kim and Grant Goodall: “Complexity effects in A- and A’-dependencies”
Adam Morgan, Titus von der Malsburg, Victor S. Ferreira and Eva Wittenberg: “This is the structure that we wonder why anyone produces it: Resumptive pronouns in English hinder comprehension”
Till Poppels and Andrew Kehler: “Reconsidering asymmetries in voice-mismatched verb phrase ellipsis”
William Matchin, Diogo Almeida, Jon Sprouse, and Gregory Hickok: “Subject island violations involve increased semantic processing, but not increased verbal working memory resources: evidence from fMRI”
William Matchin, Christian Brodbeck, Christopher Hammerly, and Ellen Lau:
“The temporal dynamics of structure and content in the language network”
