“On the temporal organization of phonological form”

Are phonological atoms static or dynamic (with internal temporal structure)? The talk will address this question in three parts. The first, theoretical part focuses on the notion of ‘dynamic’ unit and highlights its differences from precursor static notions. The second part is devoted to experimental work aimed at the temporal organization of phonological form. In the final part, on prospects & modeling, I present ongoing computational work establishing a link between theory and experimental data.
