We are very happy to announce the next talk in the Phonology Colloquium, which will take place on Wednesday, May 15, 4 – 6 pm in IG 4.301.

Yranahan Traore and Annie Rialland will give a talk on „Spreading rules and nominal tonology in Tagbana“.

The talk discusses new insights about the the phonology of tones in Tagbana. The language has a rich system of lexical and grammatical tones. Floating tones are complicating the distribution of tones. We will see that spreading tones are important for a formal account of the distribution of high, low and mid tones.

You are cordially invited!
