Meeting Description:

The 29th Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference (JK29), jointly hosted by Nagoya University and the National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics (NINJAL), will take place at Nagoya University, Japan, from 9 to 11 October 2021, with satellite events on 8 October. It should be noted that JK 29 may be held as a virtual conference amid a pandemic. We are planning to make a decision on whether JK29 will be a physical or virtual conference by the end of June at the latest.

JK29 will feature six invited presentations by the following distinguished scholars:
- Dr. Taehong Cho (Hanyang University, South Korea)
- Dr. Bjarke Frellesvig (University of Oxford, UK)
- Dr. Yuki Hirose (University of Tokyo, Japan)
- Dr. Noriko Iwasaki (Nanzan University, Japan)
- Dr. Peter Sells (University of York, UK)
- Dr. Wataru Uegaki (University of Edinburgh, UK)

The Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference (JK) is the only long-running annual international conference on Japanese and Korean linguistics. It attracts the highest caliber of academic research relevant to one or both languages, including minority languages and sign languages. As in previous JK conferences, JK29 invites papers on, for example, phonology, phonetics, morphology, syntax, semantics, historical linguistics, discourse analysis, and psycholinguistics of Japanese and Korean.

Program Information:

Invited satellite workshops planned on October 8 include the following:

- Pedagogical Approaches to Japanese/Korean Linguistics (*now accepting abstract submissions)

- Data-oriented Approaches to Meaning in Korean and Japanese
