Meeting Description: The 18th Workshop on Structure and Constituency in Languages of the Americas (WSCLA 18) will take place at the University of California, Berkeley on April 5-7, 2013.

The central objective of this workshop is to bring together linguists who are engaged in research on the analytic study of the Aboriginal languages of the Americas so that they may exchange ideas across theories, language families, generations of scholars, and, importantly, across the academic and non-academic communities that are involved in language maintenance and revitalization.

The following invited speakers have been confirmed:

Judith Aissen (UC Santa Cruz)
Ewa Czaykowska-Higgins (University of Victoria)
Monica Macaulay (Wisconsin)
B'alam Mateo Toledo (CIESAS)
