Subject: Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference


 The 11th Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference

 University of California at Santa Barbara
 June 29-July 1, 2000

Deadline for Abstract Submission: March 12, 2001
Note: This year abstracts are to be submitted ONLY by e-mail.

This year, the Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference will be held during
the 2001 LSA Linguistic Institute at the University of California at Santa
Barbara. The Institute, with its dual themes of linguistic diversity (how and
why languages differ) and Pacific Rim languages (synchronic and
diachronic aspects of major Pacific Rim languages), will be an especially
appropriate site for the conference.

This conference aims to provide a forum for presenting research in Japanese
and Korean linguistics, thereby facilitating efforts to deepen our
understanding of these two languages, which have striking typological
similarities. We especially encourage presentations which investigate both
languages. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, syntax,
semantics, pragmatics, discourse, typology, grammaticalization, historical
linguistics, phonology, morphology, language acquisition,
psycholinguistics, and sociolinguistics.

Presentations, except for those by invited speakers, will be 20 minutes
long, and will be followed by a 10-minute question-answer period.
