Meeting Description:

The Linguistic Evidence conference series is a meeting place for linguists who wish to improve the empirical adequacy of linguistic theory and linguistic analysis. A central aim is to more closely integrate data-driven and theory-driven approaches to the study of language systems, language behaviour, and language functions. Interdisciplinary work in which linguistics cooperate with academics in adjacent fields is particularly welcome. The ideal paper to be presented at Linguistic Evidence will have both a data and a theoretical dimension.

The Linguistic Evidence 2016 will be hosted by the collaborative research centre 833 'The construction of meaning', University of Tübingen, Germany.

Call for Papers:

We invite abstracts from all fields of linguistics which either:

a. Apply data from linguistic corpora, psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic experimentation, language acquisition, language pathology, fieldwork, historical texts or other sources to linguistic issues
b. Make use of quantifiable or replicable evidence to produce novel analyses or perspectives on questions of the representation, processing, or acquisition of linguistic systems
c. Offer insights into promising new methods of data collection, processing, and analysis which may be of interest to researchers in language.

We therefore particularly call for papers addressing these issues. The ideal paper will have both a data and a theoretical dimension.


We invite abstracts for 30+15 minute talks and also for poster presentations. Unless you specify otherwise in your abstract, we shall consider all submissions first as talks and then as posters. We will not normally accept more than two abstracts per person, and of these only one may be single-authored.

Abstracts should be no more than 3 pages long including data, graphics and references. They should have a 2.5cm margin on all sides, and should be written in at least 11 point Arial (or Helvetica or Nimbus Sans L or Liberation Sans) font.

Deadline for Abstract Submission: 04 October 2015
