Meeting Description:

The West African Linguistics Society on behalf of the President and the Council members is organizing its 27th Congress in Abidjan, Côte d´Ivoire from the 14th of August 2011 to the 20 th of August 2011. The main theme is: Language Typology and Language Documentation

The keynote address will be held by: Prof. Ekkehard Wolf.

The Society apologizes for the delay and the shift of venue which is due to difficulties related to local constraints in Burkina Faso and Togo.

The Society announces that the African Linguistics School in Benin and the Summer School on language documentation will probably hold their sessions a few weeks before the Congress. We expect a strong involvement of the participants from these schools.
