Meeting Description: Linguistic Evidence - Berlin Special

The biennial Linguistic Evidence conference at Tübingen, Germany, has been a meeting place since 2004 for linguists who wish to improve the empirical adequacy of linguistic theory and linguistic description. In 2013 the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin will host a Special Edition of Linguistic Evidence to promote the goals of this conference series and foster the dialogue between linguists aiming at a close integration of data-driven and theory-driven approaches to the study of language systems, language behaviour, and language functions.

The conference will take place 4-6 April 2013.
