The Workshop on Structure and Constituency in the Languages of the
Americas (WSCLA) is an annual linguistics conference, which started in
1995. The central objective of WSCLA is to bring together linguists who are
engaged in research on the formal study of indigenous languages of the
Americas in 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.

Call For Papers

We solicit abstracts for 30 minute presentations (20 minutes + 10 minutes
for discussion) or poster presentations on any area consistent with the
workshop objectives. The deadline for abstracts is 11:59 PM, October 15,
2010. Submissions are limited to one singly authored paper and one jointly
authored paper per person. Abstracts must not exceed 2 pages (8.5 x 11),
including data. References may be listed on a third sheet. Please set
margins to 2.54 cm (1 inch) on all four sides and use Times New Roman (or
equivalent) no smaller than size 12.

Please indicate whether you wish your abstract to be considered for the
main session or one of the special sessions. If your abstract is not chosen
for one of the special sessions, it may still be considered for the main
session. Likewise, please indicate whether you prefer a 30 minute talk or a
poster. We will try to accommodate everyone's preferences, however, this
may not always be possible.

All submissions should be made through EasyAbs :
