Meeting Description:

The Department of Linguistics at Harvard University will host the 18th
annual meeting of the Austronesian Formal Linguistics Association. The
conference dates are March 4-6, 2011.

AFLA is an organization which promotes the study of Austronesian
languages from a formal perspective. We will elicit talks on all aspects of
formal linguistics (e.g. language acquisition, morphology, phonology,
phonetics, semantics, syntax) of Austronesian languages. Also, this year we
will incorporate a historical linguistics component. In addition to promoting
the formal study of Austronesian languages, we especially encourage work
by speaker-linguists and junior scholars.

Invited Speakers:

Prof. Robert A. Blust
Department of Linguistics
University of Hawai'i at Manoa

Prof. Manfred Krifka
Institute for German Language and Linguistics, Humboldt University, Berlin
Director, Center for General Linguistics, Berlin

Call For Papers

Abstracts are invited for 30 minute talks (20+10) or poster presentations on
any aspect of formal linguistics (morphology, phonetics, phonology, syntax,
semantics) of any Austronesian language(s). Abstracts on the historical
linguistics of any Austronesian language(s) are also invited. Submission
limitations are one singly-authored abstract and one jointly-authored
abstract, or two jointly-authored abstracts per applicant. Abstracts should
be limited to a maximum of two Letter-sized (or A4) pages (for text,
examples, trees, tableaux, and references), with margins of one inch and in
12 pt. type.

Abstracts should be submitted as pdf files online, on the AFLA 18
submission website.
