Announcement and Call for Papers

THE SEMANTICS OF UNDER-REPRESENTED LANGUAGES IN THE AMERICAS (SULA) 2

University of British Columbia

MARCH 14 - 16, 2001


The Department of Linguistics at the University of British Columbia is
pleased to announce the second conference on the formal semantics of
under-represented languages in the Americas. The goal of the
conference is to bring together researchers working on languages or
dialects which do not have an established tradition of work in formal
semantics. Examples include native languages of North or South
America, African American English, ASL, Yiddish, or Brazilian
Portuguese. We also invite submissions from those working on child
languages (acquisition of semantics). We especially encourage abstract
submissions from those whose work involves primary fieldwork or
experimentation as well as analysis. We strongly encourage the
participation of graduate students.

The conference will be organized into panel discussions, and there
will be a special session on Tense and Aspect. The paper length will
be 30 minutes, plus 15 minutes for discussion.
