Meeting Description:

The FAJL conferences provide the primary venue for cutting-edge theoretical work in all domains of Japanese linguistics. The conference highlights the contributions made to the understanding of human language in general by the study of the Japanese language. Previous FAJL conferences have taken place in the United States, Japan, and Germany. FAJL7 will take place in Tokyo, Japan, at ICU (International Christian University) and at NINJAL (National Institute of Japanese Linguistics and Language).

Invited Speakers:

Liliane Heageman (Universiteit Gent)
Shin-ichiroo Ishihara (Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universitaet Frankfurt am Main)
Kazuo Okanoya (University of Tokyo)

We ask all participants to preregister. Information regarding preregistration will be announced on the conference website in early April 2014.

Call for Papers:

We invite submissions on any area of formal Japanese linguistics (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics). Submissions should target formally explicit, verifiable, theoretical proposals concerning Japanese using any kind of evidence (judgments, formal experiments, acquisition or corpus data, simulations, etc.). The submissions should be planned for a 20 minute talk (with an additional 10 minutes for questions) or for a poster session.

Abstracts should be anonymous, written in English, not exceed one A4 (or U.S. Letter) page with 2.5cm (or 1 inch) margins on each side, and be set in at least 12 pt. Times New Roman font. Additional data, figures, and references may be included on a second page. No more than two pages total are permitted.
