Call for Papers:

The 15th edition of BWTL | ABLT will take place in Hamilton, Ontario. This year's workshop has as its central theme the ways in which empirical approaches can help investigate the questions raised by theoretical linguistic proposals. In addition, this year's workshop will include a special session on Pedagogy in Linguistics. We hope this session will spark a dialogue about undergraduate education in linguistics. In the spirit of the previous BWTL | ABLT workshops, presentations should be based on works-in-progress only (theoretical problems, research questions, problematic data, new facts, good [or bad] ideas, etc.). Students are strongly encouraged to participate.

In addition to the usual format of presentations (10 minutes + 5 minutes for questions), we also plan to include a poster session. Abstracts (maximum 200 words) can be submitted at:


Send any questions to bwtlmcmastergmail.com.

Deadline for submissions: October 31, 2011

Appel à Communications :

La 15ème édition de BWTL | ABLT aura lieu à Hamilton, Ontario. Cette année, l'atelier a comme thème principal les manières dont les approches empiriques permettent d'examiner les questions soulevées par les propositions en linguistique théorique. De plus, l'atelier inclura une session spéciale sur la pédagogie en linguistique. Nous espérons que cette session stimulera un dialogue au sujet des études linguistiques du premier cycle. Dans l'esprit des éditions précédentes de l'atelier BWTL | ABLT, les présentations doivent se baser sur des travaux en cours seulement (par ex. problème théorique, questions de recherche, données problématiques, faits nouveaux, bonnes [ou mauvaises] idées, etc.). Les étudiant(e)s sont particulièrement encouragé(e)s à soumettre un résumé.

En plus du format habituel pour les présentations (dix minutes + cinq minutes pour les questions), nous envisageons aussi d'inclure une session de posters. Les résumés (200 mots maximum) peuvent être soumis à :


Envoyez vos questions à bwtlmcmastergmail.com.

Date limite pour les soumissions : le 31 octobre 2011
Date de notification : le 8 novembre 2011
