Call Deadline: 10-Jan-2012

Meeting Description:

The 48th Annual Meeting of the Chicago Linguistic Society will be held April 19-21, 2012 at the University of Chicago. This year's conference will include a general main session and three parasessions dedicated to: a) Agreement; b) Meaning and Cognition; c) Historical Phonology and Morphology.

Invited Speakers:

Main Session:

- Marcel den Dikken (CUNY Graduate Center)
- Kai von Fintel (MIT)
- Alan Yu (University of Chicago)


- Adam Albright (MIT)
- Sandra Chung (UC Santa Cruz)
- Nausicaa Pouscoulous (University College London)

Call for Papers:

The Chicago Linguistic Society invites abstracts for talks which are 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for a question-and-answer session. We welcome papers from all major linguistic subfields and frameworks, as well as from related cross-disciplinary areas. Submissions are limited to one individual and one joint abstract per author, or two joint abstracts per author. Presented papers will be published in the CLS proceedings.

Parasession Themes:

1) Agreement

We invite papers investigating agreement from multiple perspectives. We welcome re-evaluations of the phenomenon within well-established syntactic frameworks, as well as studies on the interface with other semantic/syntactic (e.g., boundedness, mass/count distinction) or morphophonological (e.g., multiple exponence) issues. Psycholinguistic investigations are also welcome.

2) Meaning and Cognition

We invite papers concerning the relation between semantic representations and cognitive processes. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the online integration of semantic and pragmatic information, real-time evidence of semantic composition, and the acquisition of specific categories of expressions (e.g., NPIs, number words, quantifiers). We also welcome computational approaches alongside experimental ones.

3) Historical Phonology and Morphology

We invite papers addressing issues in phonology and morphology, and their interaction, from a historical perspective. Works pertaining to such aspects as synchronic analysis, learning and variation are particularly welcome. In addition to more traditional studies, we also look forward to papers with a strong computational or experimental flavor.

Abstract Guidelines:

Abstracts which fail to adhere to any of the following guidelines will be rejected without consideration for inclusion in the conference program.

1) Abstracts must be submitted in PDF format with filename PaperTitle.pdf (e.g., The_Morphophonemics_of_Robojibwe.pdf).

2) Include paper title and keywords (i.e., CLS session title, linguistic subfield(s), language(s)/ language family) in the abstract.

3) An abstract must be at most two pages in length (including data and references), on letter sized (8.5 by 11) or A4 page setting with one-inch margins, set in a font no smaller than 11 points. Intersperse data within the main text of the abstract. Do not put data on a separate page.

4) Abstracts must be anonymous. Author name(s) must not appear on the abstract or file name. In addition, be sure to remove any author name in the document properties of the PDF file.

5) Please submit your abstract at http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/cls48. All abstracts must be submitted by 11:59 PM CST on Tuesday, January 10, 2012.

Abstracts will be evaluated under a two-tiered review system involving both external and internal reviewers.
