order to exchange ideas across theories, language families, generations of
scholars, and across the academic and non-academic communities who are
involved in language maintenance and revitalization.

WSCLA 15 will take place at the University of Ottawa on February 5-7, 2010.

The following invited speakers have been confirmed:

Henning Garvin

There are two special themed sessions: (1) Issues in Phonology in Languages
of the Americas, and (2) New Issues in Noun Incorporation. In addition
there will be a round table discussion with invited speakers entitled
Building Partnerships between Communities and Universities.
