Meeting Description:

New Reflections on Grammaticalisation 5 will be held at the University of Edinburgh, 16-19 July 2012. We hope to build on the success of previous meetings in the series, held in Potsdam (1999), Amsterdam (2002), Santiago de Compostela (2005) and Leuven (2008).

The aim of the conference is to refine current thinking on the nature of grammaticalisation. The Edinburgh conference will take place one hundred years after the publication of Meillet's groundbreaking paper on grammaticalisation, since when the topic of grammaticalisation has been a central one in historical linguistics research.

We are delighted to announce that the following researchers have agreed to give plenary presentations:

Ian Roberts (University of Cambridge)
Roland Pfau (University of Amsterdam)
María José López Couso (University of Santiago de Compostela)
Anne Wichmann (University of Central Lancashire)
Umberto Ansaldo (University of Hong Kong)

Call for Papers:

We welcome papers on all topics relating to grammaticalisation, though we have selected the following as special themes for the conference:

Formal approaches to grammaticalisation
Grammaticalisation and sign languages
Grammaticalisation and (inter)subjectification
Grammaticalisation and prosody
Grammaticalisation and language contact

Proposals for workshops are also welcome, and have the same deadline as papers for the general session (i.e. 10 January 2012).

Abstracts should be no longer than 500 words, and should be submitted online via the conference website (www.lel.ed.ac.uk/nrg5/Call_For_Papers.html). Workshop submissions should contain both a short statement of overall aims, along with abstracts for each of the papers to be presented.

General questions regarding NRG5 should be directed to Graeme Trousdale (graeme.trousdaleed.ac.uk); any questions regarding the process of abstract submission should be directed to Linda van Bergen (l.vanbergened.ac.uk).
