Rutgers has joined the UMass/MIT joint phonology meeting (formerly known as UMMM and MUMM).  Now that Rutgers is a part of the meeting, it will be known as RUMMIT in future years.

Aaron Braver and Jeremy Perkins presented their recent experimental work in Rutgers’ first showing at the meeting.  Jeremy presented work based on his first qualifying paper on consonant-tone interaction, titled “Glottalization and Onset-Tone Interaction in Thai”.  Aaron presented a paper on incomplete neutralization in American English Flapping, titled “A Task Effect on Incomplete Neutralization?”.

The next RUMMIT meeting will be held at MIT in the spring.
