Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Sociolinguistics

Call Deadline: 15-Jan-2010

Meeting Description:

The International Linguistic Association (ILA), a professional organization founded in October 1943 as the Linguistic Circle of New York, is devoted to the study of all areas of linguistics and their roles in society.

Call for Papers:

Teachers and students are invited to submit abstracts for papers for the 55th annual conference to be held in conjunction with the American Dialect Society—Northeast region, at the State University of New York at New Paltz, April 15-17, 2010.

Papers in any area of linguistics are appropriate; however, the theme of this year's conference is 'dialects' (regional or social). Periodically, the ILA has held conferences on this topic in the past. The study of dialect as a major field in linguistics has been developing for nearly 400 years. Thomas Jefferson recognized the importance of language change as an integral part of society; Thomas Pickering wrote in the second decade of the 19th century of what he found odd in American speech. Bloomfield, Sapir, the Grimms, Bloch, Kurath, Cassidy, and more recently Hall, Preston, Labov, and Wolfram, to name but a few, have furthered the study of dialect. In a distinctive setting where American Indian languages, Dutch, French, German, English and just about every other language of people settling in the early colonies coexisted and blended for centuries, this conference will facilitate further exchange in the subject.

Please submit proposals (400 word maximum) for individual papers to be received no later than January 15, 2010. Proposals for panels or poster sessions must include topics and a summary for each speaker. Proposals should be appropriate for publication in the meeting program.

Send proposals to abstractsilaword.org The word "Abstract" must be included in the subject line of the e-mail message. Authors of submissions will be notified of acceptance by February 15, 2010.

Presenters are expected to be current members of either ILA or ADS. Submissions for papers from ADS members will be considered for presentation in the ADS session(s). ADS and ILA members will be admitted to all conference sessions, plenary sessions, and events but must submit to the ILA registration fee.
