Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Call Deadline: 31-May-2021

Meeting Description:

The LAGB welcomes abstract submissions from all subfields of linguistics, to capture the diversity of linguistics research in the UK and beyond. This year, LAGB 2021 will not only feature our usual general session that will run throughout the conference, but will also include five themed sessions. Abstracts can be submitted to be included in the general sessions or as part of a themed session (see below). The 2021 conference will be held entirely online.

Call for Papers:

Due to requests from members and the extraordinary circumstances of this year, we are extending our abstract deadline by two weeks to 31 May, 2021.

Both members and non-members are invited to offer papers for the meeting, and each individual is permitted to submit up to two abstracts on which they are an author. We are not able to consider any additional submissions from the same author. All abstracts will be blind-peer-reviewed by an international committee of reviewers. The length for all papers delivered at the LAGB 2021 meeting is 20 minutes (plus 10 minutes' discussion).

The deadline for submissions is 5PM GMT Monday, 31 May, 2021. Abstracts can be submitted to be included in the general sessions or as part of a themed session:
- New directions in Creole linguistics
- Debates in the globalising of variationist sociolinguistics
- Linguistics and community languages in schools
- Directions in linguistics and social justice
- Particles in African languages

Submission will be via EasyChair:
