CALL FOR PAPERS

CLS 40: LOOKING OVER AND THE OVERLOOKED

In celebration of the fortieth anniversary of the Chicago Linguistic
Society, this year's meeting will focus both on the
progress which the field of linguistics has made, and on the need for
unification within the field. To that end, the Main Session will
highlight our past as an organization and a discipline, while our
Panel Sessions will address areas of the field that are
underrepresented. In addition to these scheduled sessions, there will
also be special readings of classic CLS papers from the past four
decades.

I. AFRO-ASIATIC: ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR THEORY

This panel will look at the ways in which Afro-Asiatic languages pose
difficulties for current synchronic linguistic theories, as well as
how their relationships to one another diachronically are currently
understood. Contributions on languages from the five less well
studied branches -- Berber, Chadic, Cushitic, Egyptian and Omotic --
are greatly encouraged.

II. LINGUISTIC THEORY AND ITS APPLICATIONS

This panel aims to explore the complex and varied links between
Linguistics and related disciplines. The scope includes any subfields
of computational linguistics and areas of applied linguistics that
involve major formal linguistic theories. Papers should be explicit
in explaining the ways in which theory and application interact, and
should support arguments with concrete research findings.

III. 'WHAT WE TALK ABOUT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT NOTHING': THE EXPERIENCE
OF ABSENCE IN LINGUISTICS

>From the syntax and semantics of anaphora, to underlying
representations, to downstep phenomena in the analysis of tone,
'absence' is postulated to be everywhere. The goal of this panel is
to make the linguist's own assumptions explicit by
convening a discussion addressing whether or not, and to what extent,
missing material can be said to exist.

IV. DISPENSING WITH DERIVATION: MONOSTRATAL THEORIES OF GRAMMAR

This panel will collect papers addressing current problems in
syntax/semantics, employing monstratal frameworks such as Head-Driven
Phrase Structure Grammar, Construction Grammar, Lexical Functional
Grammar, Autolexical Grammar, etc. Approaches to this topic will
include:
 
* Alternate approaches to thorny problems which have resisted
explanation within derivational accounts.

* Advantages of monostratal theories in addressing issues of
processing (i.e. consideration of the production bias of derivational
theories), including research on pragmatics and discourse analysis.

Abstracts, in pdf format only, may be submitted to
clsdiderot.uchicago.edu Please indicate in your abstract whether you
are submitting to the Main Session or to one of the Panel Sessions.

Abstracts are due by January 24, 2004
