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. In view of the continuing spread of COVID-19, the organizing committee decided that the conference will be held as a virtual “real-time” conference from October 9 to 11, 2021 (Japan Standard Time), with invited workshops planned on October 8.

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.

Second Call for Papers:

The JK29 organizing committee welcomes abstract submissions for 20-minute oral presentations, followed by 10 minutes for discussion, and for poster presentations. Oral presenters will make real-time presentations on Zoom (Japan Standard Time). Special considerations may be given to oral presenters logging in from different time zones. Poster presenters will be asked to upload their pre-recorded presentations on the conference website in advance (one week before the conference) and receive and respond to questions/comments during the conference period (October 9-11) in a non-real-time fashion (e.g. Slack ( As in previous JK conferences, papers based on oral presentations will be published by CSLI.
