Call for Papers

(Deadline Extended until February 8, 2010)

The International Linguistic Association (ILA), a professional organization
founded in October 1943 as the Linguistic Circle of New York, is devoted to the
study of all areas of linguistics and their roles in society. Teachers and
students are invited to submit abstracts for papers for the 55th annual
conference to be held in conjunction with the American Dialect Society-
Northeast region, at the State University of New York at New Paltz, April 15-17,

Papers in any area of linguistics are appropriate; however, the theme of this
year's conference is DIALECTS (regional or social). Periodically, the ILA has
held conferences on this topic in the past. The study of dialect as a major
field in linguistics has been developing for nearly 400 years. Thomas Jefferson
recognized the importance of language change as an integral part of society;
Thomas Pickering wrote in the second decade of the 19th century of what he found
odd in American speech. Bloomfield, Sapir, the Grimms, Bloch, Kurath, Cassidy,
and more recently Hall, Preston, Labov, and Wolfram, to name but a few, have
furthered the study of dialect. In a distinctive setting where American Indian
languages, Dutch, French, German, English and just about every other language of
people settling in the early colonies coexisted and blended for centuries, this
conference will facilitate further exchange in the subject.

Please submit proposals (maximum 400 words) for individual papers to be received
no later than February 8, 2010 (midnight). Time allotted presentations will be
20 minutes for delivery of the paper plus 5 minutes discussion. Proposals for
panels or poster sessions must include topics and a summary for each speaker.
All proposals should be appropriate for publication in the meeting program.

Send proposals to abstractsilaword.org
The word "ABSTRACT" must be included in the subject line of the e-mail message.

Presenters are expected to be current members of either ILA or ADS. Submissions
for papers from ADS members will be considered for presentation in the ADS
session(s). ADS and ILA members will be admitted to all conference sessions,
plenary sessions, and events but must submit to the ILA registration fee.

The Saturday banquet will be open to all for an additional nominal fee. Advance
banquet registration is advised as restaurants in New Paltz tend to be small;
payment may be made at the conference.

The invited plenary speakers are:
Dr. Joan Houston Hall (DARE- University of Wisconsin)
Professor Dennis R. Preston (Oklahoma State University)
Professor Walt Wolfram (North Carolina State University)
Professor John M. Lipski (Pennsylvania State University)

Conference co-chairs:
Yolanda Chavez-Cappellini (SUNY-New Paltz)
David K. Barnhart (Lexik House)
