Linguistic Field(s): Anthropological Linguistics; General Linguistics; Sociolinguistics

Meeting Description:

The 38th annual meeting of the Berkeley Linguistics Society will be held at the University of California, Berkeley on February 11-12, 2011. The meeting will comprise a Thematic Session, and a General Session.

The General Session will cover all areas of linguistic research. We welcome proposals from diverse theoretical frameworks as well as papers on language-related topics from other disciplines (e.g., cognitive science, psychology, neuroscience, computer science, anthropology, literature, areal studies).

Thematic Session: Language Contact

The BLS 38 thematic session invites papers pertaining to all aspects of language contact, a major phenomenon that concerns all areas of linguistics and many linguistics-related fields. We are looking for submissions form all linguistic subfields and all theoretical frameworks: phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, historical linguistics, and others. We also strongly encourage interdisciplinary work spanning two or more disciplines, such as anthropology, history, archaeology, geography, molecular anthropology and genetics. Computational approaches to language contact are also welcome. A driving question is: how can the inter-disciplinary study of language contact phenomena contribute to uncovering key aspects of the history and culture of entire regions and populations?

Invited Thematic Session Speakers:

Mark Donohue, Australian National University
Sarah Thomason, University of Michigan

Invited Main Session Speaker:

Dominique Sportiche, UCLA & Department of Cognitive Studies (ENS - Paris)
