conference title: WLC 2 / Second Wakashan Linguistics Conference
conference dates: 5-7 May 2006
conference location: University of Victoria (Victoria, BC, Canada)
deadline for preprints papers: 31 March 2006
deadline for notification of presentation: 5 April 2006

The Linguistics Department at the University of Victoria would like to invite papers for the second Wakashan Linguistics Conference. Papers may be on any aspect of the scientific study, teaching, or second language learning of the Wakashan languages (Makah, Ditidaht, Nuuchahnulth, Kwakwala, Oowekyala, Heiltsuk, and Haisla).

It is expected that presentations at the conference will fall into three general groups: technical linguistics papers, updates of local language programs, and tutorials.

The purpose of tutorial presentations is for language teachers, revitalizers, and linguists to learn from each other by sharing things that are well known to some participants, but not to others. Possible topics for tutorials include successful teaching strategies, opportunities for language research, and applications of linguistics to language teaching.

We would particularly like to present a tutorial consisting of an introduction to and overview of the Wakashan language family. Interested parties please contact one of the organizers.

Papers submitted by 31 March 2006 will be distributed in a preprints volume so that participants can review them before they are presented at the conference. If you cannot or do not wish to submit a paper to the preprints volume, but would still like to present at the conference, please inform the organizers no later than 5 April 2006.

Information on travel, accommodations, and ordering the preprints volume will be circulated in a later message. Thank you,

Adam Werle and Leslie Saxon
University of Victoria
