Subject: International Conference on Processing Head-final Structures

Full Title: International Conference on Processing Head-final Structures

Date: 21-Sep-2007 - 22-Sep-2007

Linguistic Field(s): Psycholinguistics

Call Deadline: 20-Apr-2007

Meeting Description:

Studying the processing of head-final structures and making comparisons to that of head-initial structures are critical for researchers to gain deeper insights into how humans are able to process different types of information observed in different types of languages. The current conference will promote dialogue and interchange among scholars working on cutting-edge research on head-final structures in a wide range of languages. Cross-linguistic findings from languages with prominent head-final structures will be brought together and compared, including the comparisons among head-final languages, and those with head-initial languages such as English. The conference will deal with language processing and production by a wide range of speakers – from adults to children, as native speakers and as speakers of a foreign language. It will also be a place for exchanging new methodologies, examining language-specific issues, and helping to determine a research agenda for the next several years.

Abstracts are invited for (1) 20-min presentations (followed by 10 min discussion) and (2) poster presentations. Submissions are solicited in areas including, but not limited to, the following:

-Comparisons of processing within head-final languages, such as differences in the use of verb information in Japanese vs. Korean, and in German head-final constructions vs. strict verb-final languages such as Japanese and Korean.
-Contrastive studies of head-final and head-initial structures. Studies using new methodologies and those focusing on underinvestigated languages will be particularly welcome.
-Data on underinvestigated constructions, languages, and phenomena in general are welcome. Examples include data from Hindi, Chinese, Korean, Basque, and Turkish, among others.
-New data on current issues such as the processing of relative clauses, incremental processing, and structural priming in head-final structures. Those who employ innovative methods of investigation are particularly encouraged.
-L2 processing/production by speakers whose native language has an opposite head-direction. These include cases such as English or French speakers learning Japanese, Chinese, or Korean, or Japanese, Chinese, or Korean speakers learning English or French, etc.


Abstract deadline for both talks and posters: April 20th 2007


The text should be in 12 pts font, and no longer than 400 words excluding references and examples. References and examples should follow the main text, and they together should not exceed 20 lines. The name and affiliation of the author(s) should not be included in the abstract.

Email the abstract in PDF format to hfconfrit.edu with title ''submission.'' The body of the email must include the following information:

-names and affiliations of all authors
-telephone number and mailing address of the contact person
-preferred presentation format: indicate the submission for talk only, poster only, or for either
-We are currently applying for a travel fund for graduate students. Indicate your interest in receiving the funding, if it becomes available.
