Conference theme: Are language borders expanding, evolving, or eroding?

LASSO Membership:

Participation in LASSO is a privilege of membership; this means that an individual must be a current member in order to present a paper and be listed in the conference program. You may fill out a membership form at the same time you register for the conference online. Membership includes a subscription to the Southwest Journal of Linguistics.


2nd Call for Papers:

Abstracts for papers or posters in any area of linguistics are welcome, as are proposals dealing with language issues of special interest in the Southwest. Abstracts for papers or panels on border issues and language contact are especially welcome. Proposals for complete panels with 2-4 speakers are also welcome.

Submissions by graduate students are welcome, and students are eligible for the Helmut Esau Prize, which includes a $400 cash award.

Deadline for abstract/proposal submission is June 29, 2012.

Presentation Format:

Presentation time for papers will be 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion. Abstracts may be in English or Spanish. Presentations should be given in the same language as the abstract. Only one abstract as single author and a second as co-author will be accepted from any one individual.

Abstract Format:

Abstracts should be 250-500 words, single-spaced in 12 point Times New Roman font. Abstracts should summarize the main points and indicate key aspects of the data and methodology. Use of special font items should be kept to a minimum. In general, omit the bibliography. Abstracts will be distributed via the Internet as received.

At the beginning of the abstract, write the title of the paper. At the end of the abstract, repeat the title and also list the author's name (if more than one author, list names in the order they should appear in the program), academic affiliation, mailing address, telephone number, and email. If the author will not be available at his/her usual address or email during the summer, provide summer contact information in the cover email.

Abstract Submission:

Abstracts should be emailed to cleggjipfw.edu as a PDF or Microsoft Word (doc or docx). Special font items travel best as a PDF. In addition to sending the abstract as an attachment, please paste the text of the abstract into the email message itself.

Authors will receive a reply notifying them that their abstracts are under consideration. If such notification has not been received within one week, the abstract did not reach its destination and should be resent. Authors will be notified by late July as to whether their papers have been accepted.
