Call For Papers

Following the success of the first and second editions of the International
Conference on Maltese Linguistics, held in Bremen and organised by the
International Maltese Linguistics Association (G?aqda InternazzjonaLI
tal-Lingwistika Maltija), we invite submissions of extended abstracts for
the third edition, to be held on April 8-10, 2011.

This third edition is organised by the University of Malta and the G?aqda
Internazzjonali tal-Lingwistika Maltija. The conference will be held in
Valletta, Malta.

We invite abstracts for oral and poster presentations on all topics related to
Maltese linguistics, as well as papers focusing on Maltese in relation to
other languages.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Historical approaches to Maltese and related languages
- Language contact
- Computational approaches to Maltese
- Typological perspectives on Maltese and related languages
- Language acquisition in the Maltese context
- Variation and dialectology in the Maltese context
- Lexicography
- Semantics
- Pragmatics
- Morphology
- Syntax
- Phonetics and Phonology
- Maltese in the European context

Abstracts for oral presentations should not exceed 500 words; those for
poster presentations are limited to 300 words. Abstracts will be reviewed by
an international programme committee. Reviewing will be double blind;
therefore, abstracts should be anonymous.
