Meeting Description:

The Linguistics department at the University of California, Santa Barbara announces its 18th Workshop on East Asian Languages (WEAL). The workshop is an informal meeting where participants can present and discuss issues on languages in East Asia, including Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. WEAL 2012 will take place on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at the McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB, UCSB.

WEAL is the Workshop on East Asian Languages/Linguistics, which was founded in 1990 and has traditionally been a student-run workshop. WEAL was originally initiated by graduate students in the UCSB Department of Linguistics and later co-organized with graduate students in the UCLA Department of Asian Languages and Cultures.

General Information:

Santa Barbara is situated on the Pacific Ocean near the Santa YƱez Mountains. The UCSB campus is located near the Santa Barbara airport. Participants may also fly into LAX airport in Los Angeles, which is approximately 90 miles southeast of the campus. Shuttle buses run between LAX and Santa Barbara. Information about hotel accommodations will be posted on our website:


For further information, feel free to contact the conference coordinators, Allison Adelman or Heather Simpson, at weal2012gmail.com.

Call for Papers:

WEAL is intended to be a data-based and informal workshop for presenting and discussing issues on East Asian languages, including Japanese, Chinese and Korean. Therefore, we would especially welcome presentations on initial results and other issues arising from ongoing projects as well as finished papers. WEAL welcomes presentations on a wide variety of topics, such as historical linguistics, phonology, syntax, semantics, discourse/pragmatics, sociolinguistics, computational-linguistics, psycholinguistics, and language acquisition.

Abstracts are invited for talks on any topic in East Asian linguistics. This is an informal workshop for work in progress: presentations could be on the initial results and other issues arising from ongoing projects, rather than finished papers. We especially welcome proposals from UCSB, UCLA and other departments in the Southern California area. We encourage both students and faculty to participate.

Talks will be 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for discussion. Abstracts should be 500 words or less (excluding examples and/or references) and can be submitted by hard copy or email. Please indicate your source(s) and type(s) of data in the abstract (e.g., recordings, texts, conversational, elicited, narrative, etc.). For co-authored papers, please indicate who plans to present the paper as well as who will be in attendance.

Please include the following information along with your abstract: (1) your name; (2) affiliation; (3) mailing address; (4) phone number; (5) email address; (6) title of your paper.

For Email Submissions:

Include the information noted above in the body of the email message. Include the abstract as an attachment. Please limit your abstracts to the following formats: .pdf, .rtf, or Microsoft Word document. Send email submissions to:
