Meeting Description:

The Fourth Asialex conference, themed "Words in Asian Cultural
Contexts", will be held on June 1 - June 3 2005 in Singapore,
organised by the National University of Singapore, and held at the M
hotel.

The conference theme will be "Words in Asian Cultural
Contexts". The examination of the functions and representations of
words in Asia and of Asia in words aims to bring together linguistic
and literary scholars of Asia in an interdisciplinary forum. One of
the key questions is the conceptualisation of cultural space and its
construction through language in Asian environments. Particularly in
Asia, where different cultures and ethnicities commonly converge and
give rise to cultural and textual hybridity, the wider study of words
can foster better cross-cultural communication and lead to a better
understanding of its peoples. In order to encourage greater
cross-fertilisation of ideas in Asian cultural contexts, this
conference plans to focus on the following related perspectives:

- lexicology and lexicography 
- sociolinguistics and language pedagogy 
- information and communications technology 
- literary, cultural and postcolonial studies 

We invite presentations for this conference which may take the form of
papers, posters or symposiums. The time allotted for each paper
presentation is 30 minutes (ie 20 minutes for presentation and 10
minutes for discussion). A poster session will also be held at the
conference. Details such as the size and format of poster stands will
be announced later. The time slot for the symposium is 100 minutes (eg
4-5 short papers plus discussion).

We invite abstracts (max. 250 words) for papers, posters and
symposiums. All presentations should be given in English.

Submission deadline for abstracts is 31 December 2004.

abstracts, can be found at:
