ICPC 2024 Poster

45th International Child Phonology Conference
(ICPC 2024), 
7-9 May 2024 

ICPC is the largest annual gathering for research on child speech, child phonological development and child phonological disorders (SSDs).

ICPC 2024 welcomes proposals for oral and/or poster presentations on all aspects of children's speech sound development and use in typical and atypical contexts in monolingualism, bilingualism, multilingualism, early second language acquisition, dialects, and sign language phonology. Work on indigenous, minority, and under-researched languages is also encouraged.

The conference supports a multi- and inter-disciplinary approach across phonology, phonetics, interfaces with other grammatical levels, speech production, speech perception, psycholinguistics, clinical linguistics, sign language phonology, computational modelling, educational approaches, and the application of new technologies. Theoretical, empirical, experimental, and clinical contributions are welcome.

Specific topics include:
- acquisition and use

- pronunciation learning and teaching
- typical
- atypical
- multimodality
