Meeting Description:

The North American Conference on Afroasiatic Linguistics (NACAL) offers a venue for the presentation and discussion of original research on linguistic topics relevant to the languages of the Afroasiatic phylum (Chadic, Berber, Cushitic, Omotic, Egyptian, and Semitic). Now entering its 40th year, NACAL has held annual meetings since 1973. Previous meetings have been held in Albuquerque, Ann Arbor, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Cambridge, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Haven, San Diego, Seattle, Toronto, and several other cities in the United States and Canada.

Standard accommodations for NACAL 40 will be available at the conference venue, the Continuing Studies Conference Center, at the discount rate of $69/night.


Deluxe accommodations are also available in the immediate vicinity of the conference venue.

Call for Papers:

Submissions are solicited for the 40th annual meeting of the North American Conference on Afroasiatic Linguistics (NACAL 40), which will be held at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey (New Brunswick, NJ), on Saturday, February 18th, 2012 and Sunday, February 19th, 2012.

Topics related to all aspects of Afroasiatic languages, including phonology, morphology, syntax, comparative linguistics, sociolinguistics, and epigraphy, will be considered. These topics should only be considered as general guidelines and are not intended to be exclusive.

To commemorate its 40th annual meeting, NACAL will host a special section dedicated to the theme of 'Technology' and how it relates to Afroasiatic language theory, documentation, description, translation, and pedagogy.

Submissions to this section are also solicited, but no original submission will be rejected on account of its subject, so long as it relates to the languages of the Afroasiatic phylum and meets the scholarly standards established by previous conferences.

Abstracts describing the precise topic treated with a length of approximately 200-300 words can be sent as an electronic version (pdf and MS Word document) to the address specified on the registration page on the website (http://www.nacal.org). The deadline for submission is November 15, 2011.
