Meeting Description: Semantics of Under-Represented Languages in the Americas (SULA) 8 will be held at the University of British Columbia, 16-18 May 2014. The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers working on languages or dialects spoken in the Americas which do not have an established tradition of work in formal semantics. We especially encourage participation from those whose work involves primary fieldwork or experimentation as well as analysis and from graduate students.

There will be two special sessions this year:

(1) Na-Dene Languages
(2) Pragmatics and Information Structure.

Invited Speakers:

Elizabeth Bogal-Allbritten (University of Massachusetts, Amherst)
Seth Cable (University of Massachusetts, Amherst)
James Crippen (UBC)
Kathryn Davidson (Yale University)
Pat Littell (UBC, University of Potsdam)
Andrew McKenzie (University of Kansas)
