Meeting Description:

WSCLA 24, the 24th Workshop on the Structure and Constituency of the Languages of the Americas, will take place at the University of Maryland, College Park on May 9-11, 2019. We invite submission of abstracts for 20-minute oral presentations (with an additional 10 minutes for questions) or posters in any area of formal linguistics (including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics) focusing on the Indigenous languages of North, South or Mesoamerica. We welcome papers that address diachronic, sociolinguistic, or applied topics from a formal perspective, and we are especially interested in papers that address the responsibilities of formal linguistic research with respect to the concerns and needs of Indigenous communities.

Invited speakers will be announced later in the fall. We expect a volume of conference proceedings to appear in the UBCWPL series.

Call for Papers:

Abstracts should be submitted according to the following instructions:

Abstracts must be anonymous. Author name(s) should not appear in the abstract or file name.
Letter size paper, 1 inch margins, 12pt font from the Times family.
A maximum of two pages, including examples and references.

Submissions are limited to two abstracts per author, including at most one single-authored abstract. (In other words, you may contribute to two coauthored abstracts, or one co-authored abstract plus one single-authored abstract.)
