Meeting Description:

The attention devoted to the linguistics of the English language has resulted in a broad body of work in diverse research traditions. The aim of the ICLCE conference is to encourage the cross-fertilisation of ideas between different frameworks and research traditions, all of which may address any aspect of the linguistics of English. Previous ICLCE conferences were held in Edinburgh (2005), Toulouse (2007) and London (2009) along the same lines. We aim for the Osnabrueck conference to build on the success of those events.

Call for Papers:

Please note: the deadline for the submission of abstracts has been extended to 15 January, 2011.
Notification of acceptance will be sent out by February 1, 2011.

We are using the EasyABS system delivered by LinguistList. If there are any problems or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at iclce4uos.de.

Abstracts should be no longer than 350 words, preferably format A4 with 2.5 cm margins, single-spaced, Times New Roman 12 pt, and with normal character spacing. All examples and references in the abstract should be included, but it is enough, when referring to previous work, to cite 'Author (Date)' in the body of the abstract - you do not need to include the full reference. Please only use common phonetic fonts such as SIL.
