Call Deadline: 30-Nov-2005

Meeting Description:

This Symposium wants to be a meeting point for studies, from different perspectives and approaches, on the indigenous and local languages of the Caribbean Coast (including Sign Languages). With that in mind, the Symposium will (non-exhaustively) articulate around three areas:

1. Basic linguistic descriptions which can advance the level of understanding of the structure of the languages of the region, and thus contribute to both typological and formal theoretical studies.

2. Socio-linguistic issues, including language policies and ways of articulating language-society.

3. Issues of ‘good practices’ in research methodologies, including the notion of empowerment and approaches of participatory research, how to integrate the input of the language community, the active participation and training of members of the language community in research projects, and ways in which linguistic projects can optimally be organized in the context of the Coast.

-About the Symposium-
The Central American Caribbean region is a highly multilingual and multicultural area, with a complex system of linguistic hierarchies and interactions. This linguistic and cultural complexity not only derives from the multiplicity of levels of linguistic interaction, but is compounded by the lack and dispersion of in-depth studies on the structure of the languages in particular as well as on the socio-linguistics of the situation and on aspects of 'good-practices' in research.

This Symposium wants to be a meeting point for studies, from different perspectives and approaches, on the indigenous and local languages of the Caribbean Coast (including Sign Languages). With that in mind, the Symposium will (non-exhaustively) articulate around three areas:

1. Basic linguistic descriptions which can advance the level of understanding of the structure of the languages of the region, and thus contribute to both typological and formal theoretical studies.
2. Socio-linguistic issues, including language policies and ways of articulating language-society.
3. Issues of 'good practices' in research methodologies, including the notion of empowerment and approaches of participatory research, how to integrate the input of the language community, the active participation and training of members of the language community in research projects, and ways in which linguistic projects can optimally be organized in the context of the Coast.

-Abstracts-

Abstracts can be sent for 30-minute talks, on either of the topics described above.

Abstracts should not be longer than one page, with 1-inch (2.5 cm) margins on each side and font no smaller than 12pt.
Title of the abstract should appear in the first line of the page, followed by the name of the author(s) in the second line.
No more than one single-authored paper and one co-authored paper can be accepted. ICA 52 will allow no more than two papers by the same author in any of the symposia.

Where to send abstracts: electronically at icacaribpurdue.edu
Deadline for abstracts: November 30, 2005
Notification of acceptance: December 5, 2005

-Other Info-
Please note that the organizers of ICA 52 require that every participant presenting a paper register and pay by December 31st, 2005. You can check their website:

The organizers of ICA 52 have also set a (limited) program of grants to cover lodging expenses for participating speakers. Deadline for applications is also December 31st, and notification will be given by the end of January. For more information:

The organizers of the Symposium will seek to supplement those grants for travel expenses for presenters who are members of an indigenous or local language community.

Location: Boulder, Colorado, USA

Please share this announcement with your colleagues, especially those who do not have e-mail access.

Conference description and call for papers

The purpose of this conference is to stimulate and advance typological studies of Afroasiatic languages. The conference will advance our understanding of which typological features are associated with Afroasiatic as a whole and which are associated with individual branches of Afroasiatic.

We invite typological papers concerning phonological, morphological, and syntactic issues within the whole Afroasiatic phylum or within one or more of its families. We also invite papers dealing with individual Afroasiatic languages from a typological perspective.

Please send abstracts of one to two pages to Zygmunt Frajzyngier (Zygmunt.Frajzyngiercolorado.edu) or Erin Shay (Erin.Shaycolorado.edu) by 31 January 2006. We will also accept paper copies of abstracts, provided they arrive by 31 January. Send paper copies of abstracts to:

Prof. Zygmunt Frajzyngier
Dept. of Linguistics, Box 295
University of Colorado
Boulder, CO, USA 80309

Other readers of abstracts:
Gideon Goldenberg
Maarten Kossmann
Azeb Amha
Maarten Mous

Information about travel and logistics will be posted by the end of December on Zygmunt Frajzyngier's website. For additional information, please contact Zygmunt Frajzyngier (Zygmunt.Frajzyngiercolorado.edu) or Erin Shay (erin.shaycolorado.edu).

Notification of acceptance of papers will be issued no later than 28 February 2006.
