The 2011 Annual Meeting of the Linguistics Association of Great Britain will be held at the University of Manchester, from 7th to 10th September. The local organisers will be Yuni Kim, Andrew Koontz-Garboden, Ludovica Serratrice and Nuria Yáñez-Bouza. The Meeting will last four days and will feature several special events, listed below.
1. The Henry Sweet Lecture 2011 will be delivered by Professor Mark Liberman (University of Pennsylvania) on the evening of 7th September, with the title 'Towards the Golden Age of Speech and Language Science'.
2. The Linguistics Association Lecture 2011 will be delivered by Professor Colin Phillips (University of Maryland) on 10th September, with the title 'What is a Mental Grammar?'
3. There will be a special workshop related to Mark Liberman's Henry Sweet Lecture, on 7th September organized by John Coleman, entitled 'Using Large-scale Speech Collections in Phonetics and Phonology Research'.
4. There will also be a special themed session on 10th September, related to Colin Phillips's Linguistics Association Lecture, with the title 'The Psycholinguistics of Grammar', for which abstracts are now invited. These should be submitted in the same way as abstracts for the general sessions, but should be clearly marked as intended for the special session.
5. There will be a Language Tutorial on Tundra Nenets, given by Dr. Irina Nikolaeva (School of Oriental and African Studies).
6. The LAGB Education Committee will hold a two-hour session on the UK Linguistics Olympiad (a competition in which school children solve linguistics data problems). Members of the UKLO committee will explain the history, the aims, and the achievements so far, of the olympiad; present some samples of the problems children have to solve; and invite questions and discussion.
Further details will soon be made available on this website:
Call for Papers:
