Dear Postgraduates,

14th POSTGRADUATE CONFERENCE IN LINGUISTICS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER

2nd Call for Papers

In March 1990 the University of Manchester hosted its first Postgraduate Linguistics Conference, and since then this annual event has grown now drawing participants from across the world to exchange ideas in a relaxed but stimulating environment.

The aim of the conference is to bring together postgraduates from within the various areas of the discipline and to allow them to present papers to their peers. We are please to announced that Professor Geoffrey Leech, University of Lancaster, will give a plenary lecture in the early afternoon. It is hoped that the day will be rewarding for all in attendance both in learning and establishing new contacts.

The Conference is to be held on Friday 4th March 2005, from 9.00am to 5.30pm in the Coupland 3 Building at The University of Manchester.

Parallel sessions will allow twenty papers to be given.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided during the day, with a dinner in the evening for all those interested. Suggestions for overnight accommodation can be provided on request.


Any postgraduate student is very welcome to apply to present a paper from within any field of linguistics.

Papers are to be 20 minutes in length, with 10 minutes for comments and questions.

Please send abstracts by email to pgconference2005hotmail.co.uk by Monday the 10th of January 2005. They should have a maximum of 300 words (excluding references). The selected speakers will be informed in late January.
