Meeting Description:

The Linguistic Society of Southern Africa (LSSA) and the Southern African Applied Linguistics Association (SAALA) are two scholarly societies of linguists whose research foci are the languages of the Southern African region (where “southern” refers more to linguistic borders than geographic ones). These societies promote and co-ordinate the research, study and teaching of general and applied linguistics by means of the publication of an accredited journal and the organisation of an annual conference, which provides an opportunity for an exchange of ideas and for mutual stimulus to researchers in the field of language studies. The theme of the 2006 conference to be held in Durban is 'Language Variation in Changing Contexts'.


Abstracts are invited for papers in all areas of Linguistics including, but not limited to, the following themes:

- Language variation and language change through language contact
- The emergence of new varieties, dialects and languages
- Code switching and language variation
- Representation and structure in individual languages
