Meeting Description:

The Chicago Linguistic Society is the oldest student-run linguistics organization in the United States. Our linguistics conference has been held every year since 1965. This academic year, CLS will host its 53rd annual meeting, which will be held from Thursday, May 25, to Saturday, May 27, 2017.

Call for Papers:

The Chicago Linguistic Society invites abstracts in any area of current research on the human language faculty, to include phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, historical linguistics, and sociolinguistics, as well as allied fields in the cognitive and social sciences. Accepted participants will be allotted 20 minutes to present and 10 minutes to answer questions. Presented papers will be published in the CLS proceedings. We particularly encourage submissions relevant to this year’s proposed parasessions on computational/mathematical linguistics, cross-linguistic quantification, East Asian linguistics, intonation and prosody, and sign language linguistics.

Special Topics:

Computational/Mathematical Linguistics
Cross-linguistic Quantification
East Asian Linguistics
Intonation and Prosody
Sign Language Linguistics

Details on each of the special topics can be found on the conference website (http://chicagolinguisticsociety.org/call.html).

Abstract Guidelines:

Submissions that fail to comply with any of the following guidelines will be automatically rejected.

(1) Submit abstracts in PDF format with the filename PaperTitle.pdf.
(2) Include the paper title and keywords (i.e., CLS session title, linguistic subfield(s), language(s)/language family) within the abstract.
(3) Limit abstracts to two letter-sized pages in length, including data and references. Use one-inch margins and a font size no smaller than 11 point. Incorporate data into the main text of the abstract, not on a separate page.
