Submissions are limited to at most two abstracts per author (including the special session), at most one of which is single-authored. Abstracts should be no more than 2 pages long (a4 or letter-sized), in 11 pt. font, with 1-inch or 2.5-cm margins. This includes data (which can be interspersed throughout the text), and references.

Submissions should not reveal the author(s)' identity in any form (e.g.,references, file name of the abstract, etc.)

Please indicate the submission type as Main Session or Workshop (Unity of Linguistic Methods). Workshop submissions may be considered for the Main Session if so indicated. Main Session submissions will not be considered for the Workshop.

The PDF format is the only accepted electronic form for abstracts.

Special Session: The Unity of Linguistic Methods

Invited Speakers:
Gillian Sankoff (UPenn), Jon Sprouse (UC Irvine), Ed Stabler (UCLA)

Aravind Joshi, Anthony Kroch, John Trueswell (UPenn)

As linguistics continues to grow and connect with other fields, the study of language is now aided by a diverse range of investigative tools and methods. In current research, however, these methods are often viewed as mutually exclusive, if not eliminative, and the subtleties of going from theory to data and back are frequently lost.

This workshop aims to develop the common ground where multiple linguistic methods converge and contribute to the understanding of the language faculty in a complementary fashion, which is indeed the theme laid out in the founding documents of modern linguistics (Chomsky 1955/1975, Labov 1969).

We invite contributions that highlight how formal linguistic analysis informs, and is in turn informed by, empirical methods that involve computational, corpus-based, experimental, sociolinguistic and other approaches.
