Announcing the Association for Laboratory Phonology ...
LabPhon 12 will be the occasion of the launching of the Association for Laboratory Phonology, and the new journal Laboratory Phonology, published by Mouton de Gruyter. For more information about the Association, visit its website at labphon.org.
The theme of this conference is “Gesture as language, gesture and language.” This theme will be addressed from different perspectives by an exciting list of invited speakers, as well as by contributed oral presentations and posters. Non-thematic sessions (both oral and poster) will include contributions on other topics of interest to the LabPhon community.
