The Fifth

INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON
MALAY / INDONESIAN LINGUISTICS

13 - 14 June 2001
Jerusalem, Israel

***

Persons wishing to present a paper at the symposium are invited to
submit a one-page abstract, by regular mail, email, or fax, to Uri

fax: 62-21-571-9560

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 15 March 2001

Early submission procedure:
Abstracts may be submitted right away, or at any time before the 15
March deadline. Persons submitting their abstracts early will be
notified immediately whether their paper has been accepted for
presentation at the symposium, and, in case of acceptance, will
immediately be sent an official letter of invitation. (The early
submission procedure is designed to make it easier for some participants
to apply for funding and leave.) 

***

Papers to be presented at the symposium should be concerned with the
Malay / Indonesian language in any of its varieties. In addition to the
standardized versions of Bahasa Melayu and Bahasa Indonesia, papers are
particularly welcome dealing with non-canonical varieties such as
Peranakan Malay, Bazaar Malay, and regional dialects of Malay and
Indonesian. Papers may be in any of the subfields of linguistics, and
may represent variegated approaches and diverse theoretical persuasions.
Presentations at the symposium will be delivered in English.
