The FAJL conferences provide since 1994 the primary venue for cutting edge, theoretical work in all domains of Japanese linguistics. The sixth edition is going to be first time FAJL takes place in Europe organized by the ZAS in Berlin. The Centre for General Linguistics (ZAS) is a university-independent research centre located in the federal state of Berlin. Its objective is the investigation of natural language and its manifestation in individual languages.
Call for Papers:
Deadline extension to April 9.
We invite submissions on any area of Japanese linguistics (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics). Submissions should target formally explicit, verifiable, theoretical proposals concerning Japanese using any kind of evidence (judgments, formal experiments, acquisition or corpus data, simulations, etc.). The submissions should be planned for a 20 minute talk with an additional 10 minutes for questions. The conference will include at least 13 talks based on anonymous peer review of submitted abstracts. For further high-quality submissions, a poster session is going to be arranged.
The conference is also going to feature a number of invited talks in the areas syntax, phonology, semantics, and syntactic processing. Daiko Takahashi is going to give one of the keynote lectures in syntax, and we plan further invited lectures by very esteemed linguists. We are presently awaiting the decision on a grant application before we can announce more details.
Abstracts should be anonymous, written in English, not exceed one A4 (or U.S. Letter) page with 2.5cm (or 1 inch) margins on each side, and be set in at least 12 pt. Times New Roman font. Additional data, figures, and references may be included on a second page - no more than two pages total are permitted. Abstracts must be submitted in PDF and all necessary fonts should be embedded in the PDF document.
Submissions must be entered using the Easychair system through the following link, which is open as of now:
Please make sure that you upload the PDF-file of your abstract as 'Paper' on the submission page! Further instructions can be found on the Easychair site.
The extended deadline for submissions is Monday, April 9, 2012. We still plan to announce the results of the abstract selection process by June 1, 2012 at the latest.
