Meeting Description:

The inaugural session of the biennial four-week institute of The University of
the West Indies (UWI) will take place on 30 June 2008 at the Mona campus of the
UWI. The thematic focus of the CLLI is Endangered and Living Caribbean
Languages. The programme features intensive exposure to linguistics, to the
structure and usage of Caribbean languages, and to fieldwork training. The
Institute will be enriched by field trips, seminars, public lectures, specialist
workshops, panel discussions, and a Linguistics Career Day.

In seeking to promote Caribbean Linguistics locally and around the world, the
University of the West Indies (UWI) has organised the Caribbean Language and
Linguistics Institute in conjunction with the Society for Caribbean Linguistics
(SCL).

The Institute brings together students of the UWI, along with students from
other regional and international institutions, into a learning environment which
will involve a concentration of the finest scholars and specialists from within
the region and abroad. Teaching staff will include renowned Caribbean linguist,
Mervyn Alleyne, as well as well-known leaders in Caribbean linguistics such as
Nicholas Faraclas, John Rickford and Ian Robertson.

CLLI 2008 will offer the following packages: the Theory Package, the Fieldwork
Package, and three Caribbean Language and Linguistics Packages, including the
Romance Creoles Package and the Maroon Package

The Institute is open to all students wishing to read courses for credit and to
all who wish to audit.

Immediately following CLLI 2008 is the joint SCL/SPCL conference in Cayenne,
French Guiana (http://www.scl-online.net/callforpapers2008.html).
