Meeting Description:

The MER Mathivha Centre for African Languages, Arts and Culture at University of Venda is proud to be hosting the seventh annual Southern African Microlinguistics Workshop (SAMWOP-7). SAMWOP brings together linguists working in the area of Southern African microlinguistics (broadly defined as linguistics which focuses on the structure of language as opposed to, for example, its sociological or educational role in society). This includes researchers based in Southern Africa working in various areas of theoretical and general linguistics, including phonetics, phonology, morphology and syntax, as well as those based elsewhere working on, for example, South African Bantu languages, Afrikaans and Khoisan languages, as well as other African languages, particularly from neighbouring countries.

2nd Call for Papers:

This is the second call for papers of the upcoming SAMWOP 7 conference.

The workshop provides an opportunity for longer presentations and in-depth discussion, with hour-long time slots available, as well as half-hour slots for students. SAMWOP is an important forum for research and networking for junior researchers and students because it is free and fosters a friendly and collaborative atmosphere through its flexible setup, without parallel sessions, and time for informal discussion, as well as its relatively small size.

As with the previous SAMWOP workshops, a special issue of Stellenbosch Papers in Linguistics Plus (SPiL Plus) will be set aside to which attendees will be encouraged to submit their papers.

University of Venda will provide a venue for the talks, and there will be no workshop registration fee, but workshop attendees will have to pay their own way in terms of accommodation and travel.

Please submit your abstract of no more than 500 words, including examples and references in word or pdf format via Easy Chair ( by 30 September 2018 at midnight (SAST).

If you are not able to submit on the EasyAbs system, you can also submit your abstract by emailing it to
