Meeting Description:

The Linguistics Society at the University of Georgia (LSUGA) announces the Third Annual Linguistics Conference at UGA (LCUGA 3). Following the tradition of previous LSUGA conferences, we invite presentations which span linguistics subfields as well as incorporate interdisciplinary research from other areas of the sciences and humanities.

Call for Papers:

The central focus of this year's conference will be ''The Lexicon,'' broadly construed. In keeping with this focus, we encourage presentations from any subdiscipline of linguistics which address the kinds of information (phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic, etc.) that might be encoded in the mental lexicon, in addition to papers dealing with considerations of (e.g.) diachronic changes in the lexicons of individual languages, the influence of sociolinguistic variables on lexical variation, lexical variation in linguistic corpora, the lexical status of fixed expressions such as idioms, and the mental and/or biological organization of the lexicon itself.

Although preference will be given to high-quality submissions which address our central focus, we also welcome presentations on any topic relevant to the field of linguistics writ large. We especially welcome presentations concerned with the interfaces between different modules of the grammar (e.g., the syntax-phonology interface), and those which draw on methodologies associated with multiple subfields or which are collaborative or interdisciplinary in nature.

Applicants are welcome to submit up to two abstracts, one single-authored and one co-authored contribution. Presenters will be allotted 20 minutes, plus 5-10 minutes of discussion.

Abstract guidelines:

Abstracts should not exceed 500 words (not including title and references); any examples should be incorporated into the text of the abstract with relevant figures, charts, and/or graphs included on a single separate page. Abstracts must be in PDF format, and must not include any personally identifying information. Submissions that do not comply with the above guidelines will not be considered for acceptance. Please send abstracts meeting the above criteria to
