Meeting Description:

Linguistisches Internationales Promotionsprogramm (LIPP) - a part of the Graduate Centre of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München - is holding a conference on parts of speech from July 6-7 2012 in Munich.

Parts of speech belong to one of the earliest findings in modern linguistics, yet there are still disputes among scholars concerning the different dimensions of parts of speech. In this conference, we aim to investigate parts of speech from three different perspectives. Guests will have the opportunity to hear the latest developments and discussions on parts of speech research by invited speakers, who are experts in this field.

Invited Speakers:

Martin Haspelmath (MPI Leipzig)
Heike Behrens (Universität Basel)
Friedemann Pulvermüller (FU Berlin)

Call for Papers:

In addition to the guest lectures, oral sessions (20 min. plus 10 min. of discussion) and a poster session are planned. We also welcome PhD students to present their research on parts of speech with the opportunity to discuss any problematic areas.

For this occasion, we welcome abstract submissions for the following topics:

1) Parts of speech from a cross-linguistic perspective with emphasis on the problems with using parts of speech in cross-linguistic research
2) The role and importance of parts of speech in first and second language acquisition
3) Conceptual layers and foundations of parts of speech/parts of speech in mind and brain

Abstracts should be 300 words long (excluding references), must include name, institution, the topic for which the abstract is submitted and written in 12-point Times New Roman, fully justified, and single spaced with top/bottom and left/right margins of 2.5 cm. In case IPA or any other special symbols are required, any Unicode font may be used (Arial Unicode MS, Charis SIL and Doulos SIL are recommended).

Abstract Submission:

The abstracts need to be submitted electronically as pdf to symposium2012lipp.lmu.de with the subject labeled '17. LIPP-Symposium' by 15 May 2012. Presentations will be 20 minutes long with 10 minutes of discussion and can be held in English or German.
