Meeting Description:

As with previous SAMWOP conferences, this workshop is an attempt to bring together linguists working in Southern African microlinguistics (broadly defined as linguistics which focuses on the structure of language as opposed to, for example, its sociological or educational role in society). This includes researchers based in Southern Africa working in various areas of linguistics, as well as those based elsewhere working on Southern African languages. The workshop provides an opportunity for in-depth presentation and discussion, with hour-long time slots available, and no parallel sessions.

As with the previous SAMWOP workshops, a special issue of Stellenbosch Papers in Linguistics Plus will be set aside to which attendees will be encouraged to submit their papers.

Rhodes University will provide a venue for the talks, but workshop attendees will have to pay their own way in terms of accommodation and travel. There will be no workshop registration fee.

2nd Call for Papers:

This is a second call for papers for the 4th Southern African Microlinguistics Workshop (SAMWOP-4). The deadline for abstracts has been extended to 1 August, 2015.

Abstracts should be submitted through our EasyAbs page, located here:

Abstracts may consist of at most 1 A4 page of text, not including data, examples and references (data and references may carry over onto a second page). Pages should be in 12pt font, with at least standard 2.5 cm margins. Abstracts should ideally be written in English and saved as PDF format, with any phonetic fonts or images embedded.
