inspire a new generation of students.

The workshop will consist of approximately 12 talks of 30 minutes
each, followed by 20 minutes of discussion. We invite abstract
submissions dealing with any Mongolic (Mongolian) language in any area
of linguistics from any theoretical perspective, with a preference
given to descriptive works on less well documented languages/dialects
and theoretical works on a special language based on fieldwork data.

with 1-inch margins. Along with the abstract please send a separate
