Meeting Description:

LDLT5 aims to bring together researchers working on linguistic theory and language documentation and description, with a particular focus on innovative work on under-described or endangered languages.

Conference themes:

The theme of LDLT5 is 'Language documentation and linguistic diversity'.

We invite contributions relating to any aspect of the study of language and linguistics from any perspective, including:

- Formal theoretical issues
- Linguistic typology
- Documentary linguistics and responses to language endangerment
- New techniques and opportunities for documenting and describing languages

We especially welcome contributions that use empirical data to examine the relationship between language documentation and description and linguistic theory.

Invited speakers:

We are happy to announce that Ian Maddieson and Aditi Lahiri are the invited speakers for this event.
