The focus of the workshop is on diachronic phonotactics. It will address questions such as


- How are changes in stem-level, word-level and phrase level phonotactics best described and accounted for?

- Do phonological constituents larger than segments (segment clusters, syllables, feet, prosodic words, etc.) represent units with histories of their own?

- How does phonotactic complexity arise, and under what circumstances does it achieve historical stability?

- Are there constraints or preferences concerning the mapping of phonological structure on morpho-syntactic structure, and are the effects of such constraints visible in diachronic developments?

- What roles do the perception and the production of phonotactic structures play for their diachronic development?

- What are the roles of acquisition and usage in the emergence and the evolution of phonotactic patterns?


The workshop will feature a plenary session, in which papers by invited speakers will be presented and discussed.
