Call for Papers:

Submissions are invited for 30 minute-talks (plus discussion) on all domains of linguistic theory.

Abstracts are invited from all areas (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics) of formal linguistics (e.g., generative grammar or related frameworks). Topics may include syntax-semantics interface, syntax-morphology interface, and others.

Abstracts on language acquisition, psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics are also particularly welcome in a perspective that relates them to theories of grammar.

We strongly encourage contributions exploring formal approaches to language diversity and typological works (including but not limited to sign languages, creoles, under-represented languages and comparative studies).

Instructions for Abstract Submission:

Presentations must be in English. Abstracts should be anonymous and must not exceed 2 pages (A4, 1 inch-margins on all four sides, Times New Roman 12 pt.), including data and references.

Abstracts must be submitted online using the link below. We will accept electronic submissions only (.pdf files).
