The Panini Award 2011

At the 9th Biennial Conference in Hong Kong (July 21-24 2011), the
Association for Linguistic Typology will award its second Panini prize, for
a grammar passed as a dissertation between January 1st 2007 and December
31st 2010. The Panini award was established to encourage and honour
achievements in the field of documenting the world’s linguistic diversity
through the writing of reference grammars. To be eligible, a grammar must
provide a systematic, accessible, comprehensive, original, insightful and
typologically well-informed account of the workings of the language being
described, generously exemplified with natural data. Though the normal
expectation is that it would deal with a hitherto little described
language, outstanding grammars of better-known languages or dialects
thereof may also be considered if they achieve major breakthroughs in a
comprehensive understanding of the language. Grammars may be written in any
major language, subject to the availability of a sufficient and
geographically balanced set of jury members able to read the language. In
order to be eligible for the prize, the author must be a member of ALT.

Entries will be judged by a committee of half-a-dozen or more distinguished
linguists, including a number of judges who have themselves written major
reference grammars but also typologists and other categories of grammar
readers. The chair for the 2011 award will be Keren Rice.

Entries are normally submitted as a PDF file with embedded fonts. The
deadline for submission is December 31st, 2010. Any questions about
submissions should be directed to the chair.

Prize winners for the Panini award will receive a paid fare to and
accommodation and registration at the ALT conference in Hong Kong, as well
as a collection of reference grammars and other works donated by major
publishers in the area. They will also present a plenary lecture setting
out the typologically most interesting aspects of the language.

The address for submissions for the 2011 Panini award is:
