Meeting Description:

The 11th International Conference of Nordic and General Linguistics, organized under the auspices of the Nordic Association of Linguists, will take place at Freiburg University April 18-20, 2012. The ICNGL conference series provides an open forum for linguistic research in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas on Nordic (including Germanic, Finnic, Saamic and Greenlandic) and other languages, between researchers from the Nordic countries and elsewhere. Its main goals are to create and strengthen connections between researchers working on different languages, with different methodological and theoretical approaches. The Freiburg conference will have a special focus on language contact.

Theme Sessions:

The program of ICNGL11 includes the following five theme sessions:

1) Experimental Approaches to Meaning and Understanding across Languages
2) The Left Periphery in Scandinavian
3) West Nordic Prosody
4) Swearing in the Nordic Countries
5) Information Structuring and Typology of Question and Answer Pairs

For summaries, see http://icngl11.uni-freiburg.de/theme.html

Final Call for Papers:

Deadline for abstract submission is tomorrow, November 1, 2011.

In keeping with the goals of the conference series, we invite abstracts for 20-minute papers or for posters on research topics in Nordic and General Linguistics. We especially welcome papers relating to the conference topic of language contact in the Nordic area or concerning Nordic languages elsewhere, but also encourage submissions on issues such as:

1) Field linguistics
2) Areal typology
3) Grammaticalization
4) Pragmatics
5) Intercomprehension
6) Innovative methodologies

Abstracts should be between 300 and 500 words in length and should fit on a single sheet of paper. References, examples, and diagrams can be placed on a second sheet.

Abstracts are to be submitted via Easy Abstracts:


Abstract submission opens on June 1, 2011. The deadline is November 1, 2011. Authors will be notified of the outcome of their abstract on December 15, 2011.
