Meeting Description:

The Linguistics Association of Great Britain Annual Meeting 2010 will be held at
the University of Leeds, 1-4 September 2010.

Call for Papers

Abstract deadline: 4 April 2010

Plenary Speakers
Professor Stephen Levinson (MPI, Nijmegen)- Henry Sweet Lecture
Professor Joan L. Bybee (University of New Mexico)- Linguistics Association Lecture

Language Tutorial
Dr. Lutz Marten (School of Oriental and African Studies) on Herero (Bantu;
Namibia, Botswana, Angola)

As part of the meeting there will be a special workshop related to Stephen
Levinson's Henry Sweet Lecture, on 1st September organized by Kasia Jaszczolt.

There will also be a special themed session on 4th September, related to Joan
Bybee's Linguistics Association Lecture, with the title 'Exemplar- and
construction-based approaches to grammar', for which abstracts are now invited.
These should be submitted in the same way as abstracts for the general sessions,
but should be clearly marked as intended for the special session.

The LAGB Education Committee will hold a two-hour discussion on corpora in
teaching (at both undergraduate and school levels).

Both members and non-members are invited to offer papers for the Meeting. The
LAGB welcomes submissions on any topic in the field of linguistics; papers are
selected on their (perceived) merits, and not according to their subject matter
or theoretical framework.

The normal length for papers delivered at LAGB meetings is 25 minutes (plus 15
minutes discussion).

Abstract Submission
Abstracts must follow the formatting guidelines available in the First Circular,
available at the following address:

All abstracts should be submitted electronically. You will need to send an email
with two attachments - one of the attached files should be an anonymous copy of
the abstract (and should be named yoursurname-anon.pdf, or
yoursurname-anon.doc,etc.), and the other should have your name, email address
and affiliation, i.e. be camera ready (and should be named yoursurname-name.pdf,
etc.). The abstracts should be formatted in the style outlined below, and the
email to which they are attached should be sent to the President at this address:

In the body of the email you should include the title of the abstract, the names
of co-authors, if any, and an address for correspondence (email and surface),
Correspondence about the abstract will be only with the sender of the e-mail.
The attached files should be in one of the following formats: pdf (preferred),
or Word, or plain text. Any phonetic characters should either be embedded in a
pdf file, or be in the Doulos SIL font, which can be downloaded for free from
this site:

Papers for the programme are selected anonymously - only the President knows the
name of the authors and does not participate in the selection. If an abstract is
accepted for the meeting, the camera-ready copy will be used to produce the
abstracts booklet. All abstracts should be accompanied (in the email) by details
of any requirements for audiovisual equipment. While we will make every effort
to provide such equipment, we cannot guarantee that it will be available.

All abstracts must arrive before or on 4th April 2010. The committee will plan
the programme as soon as it has selected the abstracts, so please indicate in
the e-mail that you send with the abstracts if you cannot present your paper on
any particular day of the conference. Please indicate on the anonymous abstract
if your presentation is intended for the themed session on Exemplar- and
construction-based approaches to grammar.

The full circular also includes further information about abstract submission,
themed sessions, student bursaries and other LAGB-internal information.

Please distribute this message further, as you feel appropriate (for example, to
subject-specific email lists and to colleagues and postgraduate students who may
not be LAGB members at your institution).
