Meeting Description:

The third International Symposium on the Languages of Java will be held 23-24
June 2011, in Malang, East Java, Indonesia. As in the past, this conference
will focus on all linguistic aspects of the languages of Java, broadly
understood: Javanese, Sundanese, Madurese, Balinese, and Sasak; and also,
possibly, varieties of Malay spoken in those language areas.

A call for papers and further information on the conference will follow shortly.

Please address all questions to Thomas Conners at oranghutancbn.net.id.

The island of Java is home to several major languages. Javanese-- spoken mainly
in Central and East Java-- is the world's 11th largest language in number of
native speakers; 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 30 million
speakers, and Madurese-- spoken on the neighboring island of Madura and
throughout parts of East Java -- has over 13 million speakers. The speech level
system is shared by the geographically, historically, and linguistically related
languages on the neighboring islands of Bali and Lombok. Each of these
languages displays a range of dialects, isolects, continua, and contact
varieties and yet they have received relatively little attention from linguists.

With this symposium, we offer an opportunity for scholars working on any aspect
of Javanese, Sundanese, and Madurese, Balinese and Sasak to come together and
share their findings.
