Linguistic Field(s): Syntax; Typology

Call Deadline: 31-Jan-2014

Meeting Description:

In the same spirit as previous conferences in this series (SWL I, Leipzig 2004; SWL II, Lancaster 2006; SWL III, Berlin 2008; SWL IV, Lyon 2010; SWL V, Dubrovnik 2012), SWL6 will provide a forum for linguists working on the syntax of less widely studied languages from a variety of perspectives.

The main purpose of the conference is to enlarge our knowledge and understanding of syntactic diversity. Contributions are expected to be based on first-hand data of individual languages or to adopt a broadly comparative perspective. The discussion of theoretical issues is appreciated to the extent that it helps to elucidate the data and is understandable without prior knowledge of the relevant theory.

For further information, please refer to the conference website: http://swl-6.wikidot.com/.

Call for Papers:

All theoretical frameworks are equally welcome, and papers that adopt a diachronic or comparative perspective are also welcome, as are papers dealing with morphological or semantic issues, as long as syntactic issues also play a major role.

Abstracts of no more than one page (plus possibly one additional page for examples), should be sent in PDF format to swl6.conferencegmail.com by January 31, 2014, with ''SWL6 abstract'' in the subject line. Authors will receive notification of acceptance by March 31, 2014. Submissions should be anonymous and refrain from self-reference. Please provide contact details (name, phone, fax) and the title of your presentation in the body of the email.

Participants may not be involved in more than two abstracts, of which at most one may be single-authored. The conference will be held in English and abstracts must be submitted in English.
