Meeting Description:

The Laboratoire de Linguistique de Nantes (LLING-EA 3827; http://www.lling.univ-nantes.fr/) is proud to organize the 9th International Workshop on Theoretical East Asian Linguistics (TEAL-9) at the University of Nantes, Nantes, France on September 25-26, 2014.

The TEAL Workshop was first launched in 1990 at the University of California, Irvine as a mid-size workshop intended to foster research on East Asian linguistics. It has been an important forum for presenting new theories and exchanging novel ideas that bear on East Asian languages with theoretical interests. Since 2002, the TEAL Workshop has been an international event. It was held at Doshisha University, Japan in 2002, National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan in 2004 & 2013, at Harvard University, USA in 2005, at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong in 2007, at Potsdam University, Germany in 2008, at Peking University, China in 2009, at Hiroshima University, Japan in 2012.

Invited Speakers:

Nigel Duffield
- 'Vietnamese Multifunctionality, and Anti-Project'
- Konan University, Kobe, Japan

Chung-hye Han
- 'Grammar Selection in the Absence of Evidence: Korean Scope and Verb-Raising'
- Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada

Kuniya Nasukawa
- 'Syllabification Issues in Japanese'
- Tohoku Gakuin University, Sendai, Japan

Final Call for Papers:

We welcome submissions for a 20 minute talk (followed by 10 minutes of discussion) or a poster, addressing theoretical problems in languages spoken in the area of East Asia, such as Chinese, Korean, Japanese, or the minority languages spoken in China, and in the area of Southeast Asia, such as Vietnamese. We are particularly interested in theoretically oriented work bearing on issues in syntax, semantics, phonology, morphology, language acquisition, or psycho/neurolinguistics that contributes to the understanding of Universal Grammar. We also welcome comparative work among (South)East Asian languages and/or between a (South)East Asian language and other languages.

All submited abstracts should be written in English and limited to two single-spaced pages, complete with examples and bibliography. All texts should fit within two A4 pages, with 2,54cm/1-inch margin all around. Use font size 12 throughout (except for examples), preferably in Times or Times New Roman.

Submit your abstract via the EasyChair Conference, online submission system (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=teal9).
