Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

FYI: Call for Workshops: 19th International Congress of Linguists

Author: Stephen Anderson

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics
Cognitive Science

FYI Body: Call for Workshop Proposals

Geneva has been selected by the Comité International Permanent des
Linguistes as the venue for the next International Congress of Linguists 22-27
July 2013). The general focus of the 19th ICL is the Language-Cognition
Interface. Our proposal for the Congress concentrates on the cognition-
language relationship. The provisional choice of ten parallel sessions will
provide ample opportunity to explore this topic, in sessions such as
Saussure’s legacy, Origins of Language and Human Cognition, The life,
growth and death of languages, Phonology and morphology, Theoretical and
comparative syntax, Semantics-pragmatics interface, Psycholinguistics,
Sociolinguistics and multilingualism, Experimental and computational
approaches to languages and linguistics, but the general orientation will be
the relation between language and cognition.

Additional workshops will be organized, under the responsibility of workshop
promoters. This call mainly concerns workshops, which can be focused on
any type of issue connected to the main topic of the Congress.

Deadline for workshop submissions: November 30 2011
Webpage for submission: http://www.cil19.org/en/workshops/

Workshop proposals can be open or closed. In any case, the workshop
promoters will be fully responsible for the selection of the panel. The length of
the workshop will depend on the number of communications. We suggest that
the promoters plan for up to 3 slots on the congress schedule (between 3 and
7 communications each).

Decisions on proposals for workshops submitted by this date will be
conveyed to organizers by the end of December 2011.
