Linguistic Field(s): Syntax; Typology
Call Deadline: 31-Jan-2012
In the same spirit as the previous conferences of this series (SWL I - Leipzig 2004, SWL II - Lancaster 2006, SWL III - Berlin 2008, and SWL IV - Lyon 2010), SWL V will provide a forum for linguists working on the syntax of less widely studied languages or language varieties. Its main purpose is enlarging our knowledge and understanding of syntactic diversity.
Call for Papers:
Contributions are expected to be data-driven, and the discussion of theoretical issues is appreciated to the extent that it helps to elucidate the data and remains understandable to persons that are not specialists of the relevant theory. All major theoretical frameworks are equally welcome, and papers that adopt a diachronic or comparative perspective are also welcome, as well as papers dealing with morphological or semantic issues, in so far as syntactic issues also play a major role.
Abstracts of no more than one page (plus possibly one additional page for examples), should be sent in .pdf and .doc format to rmatasovffzg.hr and tena_gnjatovicyahoo.com before 31st January 2012 with 'SWL5' in the subject line.
Submissions should be anonymous and refrain from self-reference. Please provide contact details (name, phone, e-mail address) and the title of your presentation in the body of the e-mail.
Participants may not be involved in more than two abstracts, of which at most one may be single-authored.
The conference will be held in English and all abstracts must be written in English.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your

EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
