TLS 16 will accept papers concerning all areas of linguistics, but our conference this year places a special focus on 'Lexical Aspect and Temporality': There is a great deal of typological diversity with respect to how languages encode temporality and aspectual information, and we are particularly interested in papers that focus on these topics from a wide variety of approaches.

Papers on language related topics from disciplines including anthropology, cognitive science, neuroscience, philosophy of language, and psychology will also be considered.
