Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Call Deadline: 13-Oct-2013

Meeting Description:

The Linguistic Evidence conference series has since 2004 been a meeting place for linguists who wish to improve the empirical adequacy of linguistic theory and linguistic analysis. A central aim is to more closely integrate data-driven and theory-driven approaches to the study of language systems, language behaviour, and language functions. Interdisciplinary work in which linguistics cooperate with academics in adjacent fields is particularly welcome.

Invited Speakers:

Dr. Thomas Weskott (University of Göttingen)
(two others not yet confirmed)

There will be a special session on a subfield as usual:

Special session: Empirical Approaches to Information Structure

2nd Call for Papers:

We invite abstracts from all fields of linguistics which either:

a. apply data from linguistic corpora, psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic experimentation, language acquisition, language pathology, fieldwork, historical texts or other sources to linguistic issues;
b. make use of quantifiable or replicable evidence to produce novel analyses or perspectives on questions of the representation, processing, or acquisition of linguistic systems;
c. offer insights into promising new methods of data collection, processing, and analysis which may be of interest to researchers in language.

We therefore particularly call for papers addressing these issues. The ideal paper will have both a data and a theoretical dimension.

See also information on the special session: Empirical Approaches to Information Structure.


We invite abstracts for 30+15 minute talks and also for poster presentations. Unless you specify otherwise in your abstract, we shall consider all submissions first as talks and then as posters. We will not normally accept more than two abstracts per person, and of these only one may be single-authored.

Abstracts should be no more than 3 pages long including data, graphics and references. They should have a 2.5cm margin on all sides, and should be written in at least 11 point Arial (or Helvetica or Nimbus Sans L or Liberation Sans) font.

Deadline for abstract submission: 13 October 2013

Submission is being managed with EasyChair at:
