Meeting Description:

This conference is the main venue in North America for discussion of theoretical and theory-driven research in South Asian Linguistics. We encourage submissions from researchers engaged in theoretically informed field-based research and experimental/psycholinguistic approaches to South Asian languages.

Call for Papers:

(Formal) Approaches to South Asian Languages 10 – (F)ASAL 10 – will be hosted by the Linguistics Department at OSU, from March 20-22 2020. As the community of South Asianist linguists expands and evolves over the years, it would like to reach out to researchers that do high-quality linguistic study of any South Asian Language adopting a wide range of methodologies. Thus the name change from FASAL to (F)ASAL! The invited speakers for (F)ASAL 10 will include Rahul Balusu (EFLU) and Diti Bhadra (University of Minnesota).

Abstracts are invited for talks and posters from researchers engaged in analyses and description of phonetic/phonological, morphosyntactic, and semantic phenomena, theoretically informed field-based research, and experimental/psycholinguistic approaches to South Asian languages.

This year's (F)ASAL meeting will host a special half-day session focused on phonetics and phonology (organized by Kelly Berkson (Indiana)and Sameer Ud Dowla Khan (Reed College). Please submit abstracts related to any aspect of South Asian phonetics and/or phonology, including but not limited to issues involving prosody, tone, segmental or suprasegmental phenomena, or typologically unusual contrasts. Work of many types--descriptive, experimental (e.g. related to production or perception), sociophonetic, typological, theoretical, etc.— is appropriate for submission.

All abstracts, including references and data, are limited to two single-spaced pages (A4 or US Letter) with 1-inch (2.5cm) margins and a minimum font size of 11pt. One person can submit at most one abstract as sole author and another as co-author.
