Meeting Description:

The Arabic Program of the School of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures of the
University of Maryland, and the Center for Advanced Study of Language at the
University of Maryland is pleased to announce a conference on:

Communication and Information Structure in Spoken Arabic

This conference aims to fill a gap in studies about spoken Arabic by presenting
descriptions of how information is structured by speakers. A core issue to be
addressed, for instance, is the interplay between new and old information, a
topic which has been defined within the Arabic linguistic tradition since
mediaeval times (e.g. mubtada' vs. xabar). Elements of information structure
will be examined in the spoken language in terms of word order, internal
structure of grammatical elements encoding informational units, segmental
marking, discourse particles, stress and intonation, as well as the
macro-organization of information in longer stretches of text.

The Arabic Program of the School of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures of the
University of Maryland, and the Center for Advanced Study of Language invite
scholars in Arabic linguistics to present original research papers that
contribute to our understanding of oral communication in Arabic. Presentations
from various theoretical perspectives are welcome, including Arabic
dialectology, accommodation theory, code-switching, pragmatics, discourse
analysis, conversation analysis, and the ethnography of speaking. We intend to
publish a collection of selected papers with a major publishing house.

A list of invited speakers will be announced by October 2005. A certain amount
of travel funding is available.

submitting abstracts can be found at:
