Second Call for Abstracts

The First ISLOJ
International Symposium on the Languages of Java

15-17 August 2007
Hotel Graha Santika, Semarang, Java, Indonesia

Plenary Speaker: Dr. Stuart Robson, Monash University

Java is home to several major languages. Javanese-- spoken mainly in Central and
East Java-- is the world's 10th or 11th largest language in terms of the number
of native speakers. It has one of the oldest and fullest recorded histories of
any Austronesian language; and has the most fully articulated phenomenon of
speech levels of any language. Sundanese-- spoken in West Java-- has over 27
million speakers, and Madurese--spoken on the neighboring island of Madura and
throughout parts of East Java-- has over 13 million speakers. Each of these
languages displays a range of dialects, isolects, continua, and contact
varieties and yet, they have received relatively little attention from linguists.

Abstracts are invited for papers to be presented on any linguistic topics
dealing with the languages of Java: Javanese, Sundanese, and Madurese. Papers
on the related languages of Balinese and Sasak will also be considered. Papers
on other languages will be judged according to their relevance to the symposium
topic. Papers are welcome from any subfield of linguistics and from any approach
or theoretical background. Studies of non-standard(ized) versions, dialects, and
isolects, including contact varieties are particularly welcome. All papers are
to be presented in English.

Persons wishing to present papers at the symposium are invited to submit a
one-page abstract in electronic from (PDF or MSWord) to Thomas Conners at the
following address: oranghutancbn.net.id

Deadline for submission of abstracts: March 1, 2007

Please note that the 11th International Symposium on Malay-Indonesian
Linguistics (ISMIL 11) will be held the week before ISLOJ, in Manokwari,
