Meeting Description:

UMass Workshop on South Asian Syntax and Semantics
Date: March 19-20, 2011

Invited Speaker: Ashwini Deo

Goals

This workshop has two primary goals. The first is to provide a local venue for discussion of formal work on various aspects of South Asian languages. The second is to encourage discussion on the role of corpora and computational resources (lexicons, PropBanks, treebanks) for formal linguistic research and to solicit feedback for one such resource: the currently under construction Hindi-Urdu Treebank, a current version of which can be found at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1329068/Treebank-Hyderabad/treebank.html. Authors are encouraged to consider this latter goal, but this is not obligatory.


Call for Papers:

Abstracts are invited for talks on any aspects of the syntax, semantics, and morphology of South Asian languages to be held at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst on March 19 and 20. Papers that interface with other aspects of linguistics such as phonology or which exploit experimental and computational techniques are also welcome.

Submission Details

Length Requirements: 2 pages, 11pt. text, including text, examples, and references. All abstracts must be sent as pdf files to fasal.workshopgmail.com

Abstract deadline: Feb. 5, 2011
Notification: Feb. 12, 2011
Conference: March 19-20, 2011
