Guest speaker for discussion: Andries Coetzee (University of Michigan)

Our department is pleased to welcome Andries Coetzee, a faculty member at the University of Michigan. His interests include phonology, phonetics, speech processing, and the languages of southern Africa. We will be holding an informal discussion with Andries about phonology and current issues in the field: Tuesday, April 7 at 4 PM in SS 2111.

We recommend reading the following two papers by Andries before the meeting in order to become acquainted with his research:
