Full Title: Workshop:Association for Linguistic Typology 9th Biennial Meeting
Short Title: ALT9

Date: 21-Jul-2011 - 24-Jul-2011
Location: The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Contact Person: Stephen Matthews
Meeting Email: matthewshku.hk
Web Site: http://www.hku.hk/linguist/alt9

Linguistic Field(s): Typology

Call Deadline: 15-Sep-2010

Meeting Description:

Theme: Typology beyond the West: Diversity in East Asian and other non-Indo-
European languages

Call for Papers

The conference aims to present a maximum of three parallel sessions, four
workshops, and 2 poster sessions. Papers are anonymously reviewed; in line with
previous meetings, the committee will strive to ensure that selection is
rigorous but that acceptance-rate is not too low.

Three workshops are being planned for ALT9. We invite interested contributors to
submit their paper for consideration:

(1) Tone languages in East and Southeast Asia: the aim of this workshop is to
present new findings in the empirical and theoretical study of tone systems in
Asian languages. Coordinator: Picus Ding
(2) Typology/ ontogeny: co-organized by Childhood Bilingualism Research Centre
at Chinese University of Hong Kong. Coordinator: Stephen Matthews
(3) Typology of analytic languages: the purpose of this workshop is to
investigate the ontological status of analytic (or isolating) grammars from a
comparative perspective. Coordinator: Umberto Ansaldo

Each abstract will be reviewed in the same way as non-workshop individual
papers, and will be individually accepted or not. The whole workshop abstract
will also be competitively reviewed. If all individual abstracts and the
workshop abstract are accepted, the workshop will be scheduled as a workshop. If
not, the accepted papers will be scheduled as regular individual presentations
(and may be scheduled together, as we will aim for thematic unity of conference
sessions where possible). In the case of a close call (e.g. a workshop with all
but one presentation accepted; all presentations accepted but workshop proposal
not accepted; etc.) the Program Committee will try to resolve things in as
member-friendly a way as possible.

Other events (details to follow in the 2nd circular)
- The conference will be held back-to back with the 16th International
Conference on Lexical-Functional Grammar, also to be held at The
University of Hong Kong, July 16-19.
- Preceding the ALT9 there will be a 1-day workshop on Languages of China.
