The North American Conference on Afroasiatic Linguistics (NACAL)
provides scholars from North America and around the world with a venue to
discuss the Afroasiatic language phylum. Now in its 39th year, NACAL has
held annual meetings since 1973. Previous meetings have been held in
Albuquerque, Ann Arbor, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Cambridge, Chicago,
Los Angeles, Nashville, New Haven, San Diego, Seattle, Toronto, and
several other cities in the United States and Canada.
Call For Papers
Papers are solicited for the 39th annual meeting of the North American
Conference on Afroasiatic Linguistics (NACAL 39), which will be held at the
University of Texas at Austin, Saturday, February 12th, 2011 and Sunday,
February 13th, 2011.
Our keynote speaker for NACAL 39 will be Grover Hudson, Professor
emeritus of the Department of Linguistics and Germanic, Slavic, Asian, and
African Languages, at Michigan State University.
Papers are sought on linguistic topics relevant to the languages of the
Afroasiatic phylum (Chadic, Berber, Cushitic, Omotic, Egyptian, Semitic).
Topics relating to all aspects of Afroasiatic languages will be considered,
particularly including phonology, morphology, syntax, comparative
linguistics, sociolinguistics, and epigraphy. These topics should be
considered as general guidelines and are not intended to be exclusive. No
original paper will be rejected on account of its subject, as long as it relates
to the languages of the Afroasiatic phylum and meets the scholarly
standards established by previous conferences.
Abstracts describing the precise topic treated with a length of approximately
200-300 words can be sent as an electronic version (pdf and MS Word
document) to the addresses specified on the registration page on the
website (www.nacal.org). The deadline for submission is November 15,
2010. For more information, please visit our website at www.nacal.org.
Accommodations for NACAL 39 will be available at
AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center
1900 University Avenue, Austin, Texas 78705
