Call for Papers

The central objective of this workshop is to bring together linguists
who are engaged in research on the formal study of the Aboriginal
languages of the Americas so that they may exchange ideas across
theories, language families, generations of scholars, and importantly,
across the academic and non-academic communities who are involved in
language maintenance and revitalization. We invite papers that
address the theme of this year�Euro(tm)s conference:

Inside and Outside the Lexicon

While the lexicon and its interaction with other components of grammar
remains a primary concern of all linguists, the interest of this theme
for the Workshop depends on a structural property that distinguishes
many languages of the Americas on the one hand from the Indo-European
type on the other: complexity of word formation. Theoretical issues
arise concerning the bounds of lexical items, as defined in terms of
their components of either sound or meaning; the categorization and
identification of word roots, affixes, and clitics; the formation
processes for lexical items; and the articulation of lexical
structures with phonological (sound-based) and syntactic (grammatical)
structure.

Invited speakers: 

Carrie Dyck, Memorial University of Newfoundland - on the phonological
domain of word and intonational phrase in Cayuga

Lisa Matthewson, University of British Columbia - on invariant syntax
and the semantic properties of functional elements

Jerrold Sadock, University of Chicago - lexicalization and lexical
productivity in polysynthetic languages

Invited student speaker:

Leora Bar-el, University of British Columbia - lexical verb classes
and aspect in Skwxwu7mesh (Salishan)

Papers in the core areas of formal linguistics (phonetics, phonology,
morphology, syntax, semantics) within any formal theoretical framework
will also be considered. Following the tradition of this workshop, we
dedicate the final day to a linking between research on structural
topics and contributions to language preservation and
revitalization. This year the theme of the final day will be:

Dictionaries and communities

Invited panelists:

Carrie Dyck, Memorial University of Newfoundland - compiler of a
Cayuga dictionary

Peter Jacobs, Squamish Nation Education and University of British
Columbia - compiler of a Squamish dictionary

Patrick Moore, University of British Columbia - compiler of a Kaska
Dictionary

Peter Brand, First People's Cultural Foundation [to be confirmed] -
originator of 'FirstVoices' project on community language archiving

The panelists' presentations will be followed by a roundtable
discussion on this topic by all workshop participants.

Please submit a one-page abstract (a second page with references and
extra examples may be included). Abstracts should be submitted in four
copies, at least one of which should be camera-ready. Abstracts may be
submitted by e-mail attachment to wscla9uvic.ca, preferably in .pdf,
