Meeting Description:

The 5th Biennial Meeting of the Rice Linguistics Society will be held February 8 and February 9 in Houston, Texas. The theme for this year's meeting is 'Language, Culture, and Cognition'.

Invited Speaker: Daniel Everett (Bentley University)

Rice Linguistics Society (RLS) is a student-run organization closely affiliated with the Department of Linguistics at Rice University.

Call for Papers:

We welcome presentations across a wide variety of topics, but the general focus should be grammar, culture, cognition, and their intersections. We will be accepting abstracts from all subfields including, but not limited to, sociolinguistics, cognitive linguistics, linguistic anthropology, and language documentation and description. Interdisciplinary and functional/usage-based approaches are especially welcome. Talks will be scheduled for 20 minutes, with 10 minutes afterwards for discussion and questions. Alternatively, presenters may display their work during the poster session. All presenters will then have the opportunity to have their work published in the Rice Working Papers in Linguistics (RWPL; ISSN 1944-0081).

Two abstracts should be submitted; the first of which should be 500 words for review and the second should be 150 words for publication in the program. Both abstracts are due November 22.
