Meeting Description:

The Japanese Society for Language Sciences (JSLS) invites abstracts for our Twenty First Annual International Conference (JSLS2019). JSLS2019 will be held at Tohoku University (Kawauchi Campus). The campus is approximately 5 minutes by subway from the Sendai Station. The Japanese Society for Language Sciences aims to stimulate research in the language sciences based on natural language data, in areas such as language acquisition, psycholinguistics, discourse analysis and sociolinguistics, and to support the development of the language sciences through exchange between researchers. The scope of this endeavor covers a wide area, including linguistics (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics), first language acquisition, second language acquisition, psycholinguistics, language production, mother tongue education, foreign language instruction, natural language processing, brain science, bilingualism, sociolinguistics, discourse research, and linguistic philosophy, among others. This society hopes that researchers working on these widely diverse topics reach beyond their own areas of specialization by supporting the active exchange of opinions and ideas among researchers working in related fields.

Venue:

JSLS2019 will be held at Tohoku University (Kawauchi Campus). The campus is approximately 5 minutes by subway from the Sendai Station.
