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.
