Papers for this conference are invited in all areas of linguistics, (including
TESOL), and especially in our conference topic: What is Experimental
Syntax Good for? Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Grant Goodall. Dr.
Goodall received his graduate training from the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology and the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He is
currently Professor of Linguistics at UCSD. Goodall's primary area of
specialty is natural language syntax, with an established interest in applying
linguistic research to the public realm, especially with regards to language
teaching policy and practice. His current research projects include Wh-
movement and inversion phenomena, processing effects in syntax, and
experimental methods for studying syntax. Before joining the faculty at
UCSD, he worked at the University of Texas at El Paso and held visiting
appointments at the Université de Genève (Switzerland) and the
Universidad Nacional del Comahue (Argentina).
Students from any educational institution are strongly encouraged to submit
their research and share insights they have discovered in the field.
Presenters can choose between oral and poster presentations. Oral
presentations will last 20 minutes with 5 minutes for discussion and
questions. An allotment of time will be set aside for poster presentations and
discussion. This is a great opportunity to develop professional skills. The
best presentations will be awarded the Yumi Nakamura Memorial Prize in
Linguistics (up to a total of $1000.00 USD in prize money). Poster and oral
presentations are considered, accepted, and judged as equal counterparts.
Call For Papers
The deadline for submission of abstracts is Monday, 22 November 2011.
Notifications of acceptance will be distributed by mid-December, 2010.
Abstracts should be written on a single page (500 words or less) in Times

-type of presentation: oral or poster
Please do not include your name on the abstract pages.
Abstracts should be sent as an attachment in MS Word format to
LinguaUTAgmail.com. Please do not submit using an .html or PDF

booklet. If you use fonts or symbols that are unusual, please submit both
MS Word and PDF, and we will make sure the correct symbols appear. Late
submissions will not be accepted.
The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) is located in Arlington, Texas,
