Meeting Description:

The central objective of this workshop is to bring together linguists who are engaged in research on the formal study of the Aboriginal languages of the Americas in order to exchange ideas across theories, language families, generations of scholars, and, importantly, across the academic and non-academic communities who are involved in language maintenance and revitalization.

Call for Papers

Interfaces: Formal linguistics at the interface in Aboriginal languages of the Americas

Linguists working on Languages of the Americas tend to work, by default, at several interfaces. In addition to the linguistic interfaces within the formal paradigm involving various permutations of phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and discourse, many linguistic fieldworkers also work towards bridging the interfaces of linguistic theory, language and linguistic education, language revitalization and various community-based or community-directed activities.

We invite abstracts which address this theme as well as abstracts on the core areas of formal linguistics (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics) within any formal theoretical framework. Talks will be twenty minutes (plus ten minutes discussion).

Following the tradition of this workshop, we dedicate the final day to a discussion of our practices in linking our research to work being done on language preservation and revitalization. In keeping with our theme, the discussion will relate to the interface between the goals of academic linguistic work and First Nations languages and linguistic work. Speakers on this topic will include Arok Wolvengrey, First Nations University, and Ryan Heavyhead, Red Crow Community College.

Abstract requirements
- Abstracts are invited for 20 minute talks (plus 10 min. discussion) or posters;
- Abstracts should be no more than one page, single spaced, 12 pt type; examples and references may be added on a second page;
- Abstracts should be submitted as a .pdf or Microsoft Word document attached to an e-mail. In case of unusual formatting, including phonetic fonts, please submit a .pdf;
- Please send two copies of the abstract, one with no identifying information and a second including your name and affiliation below the title;
- Please indicate whether you would like to be considered for a talk, a poster, or both.

In the body of your email include the following information:
- Name and affiliation;
- Title of abstract;
- Talk, poster or either;
- E-mail address;
- Status: faculty, graduate student, postdoctoral fellow or independent.

Submit your abstracts by January 12th to: wscla12uleth.ca. Notification of acceptance will be in the first week of February.
