Meeting Description:

The V International Conference on Historical Linguistics – V CILH – will take place online, starting on July 19, 2021. The V CILH will be also an opportunity to pay homage to two outstanding linguists that helped crucially to the development of Historical Linguistics in Brazil: Mary Kato and Charlotte Galves.

Our virtual structure is composed of two environments:
(1) this official website and
(2) the auxiliary website (, where the activities of the event will take place: abstract submission, registration, access to the detailed program and to the presentation rooms.

The conference will include conferences, communication sessions, poster sessions, workshops and short courses. We welcome papers related to one of our six great thematic areas:
- Textual criticism, text editing and digital humanities;
- Theoretical linguistics;
- Linguistic change, contact and language acquisition;
- Lexicon;
- Sociolinguistics, dialectology and social history;
- Linguistic historiography, literature and culture.

Call for Papers:

To submit a paper, the participant must choose between three options: oral presentation in one of the 14 workshops provided, oral presentation in the general session or virtual poster until January 18, 2021 (extended deadline).

The abstract must contain a title, 3-5 keywords and 500-600 words, and be written in English, Galician, Spanish or Portuguese, and be sent through the submission website
