Dear all,

The Chicago Linguistics Society has extended the deadline for submitting
papers to CLS 51. Some of this year's "Special Topics" may be of special
interest to listerv members, especially "Not-Strictly-Linguistic
Interfaces" and "Beyond Field Methodologies."
Please see the attached PDF for the call, or see the CLS 51 Call for Papers
at http://chicagolinguisticsociety.org/call.html

The deadline currently listed is January 3; however, it has been extended
to January 10. Changes to reflect the new deadline will be made shortly.

Any questions may be directed to the CLS 51 email address:
clsfiftyone at gmail.com

Apologies for cross-posting.
Thanks, and have a happy new year!

The Chicago Linguistic Society invites abstracts for talks in any area of
current research
in phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics,
historical linguistics,
and sociolinguistics, as well as in related cross-disciplinary areas. We
particularly encourage
submissions that involve experimental and/or computational methodologies,
as well as
submissions that relate to the special topics listed below:

*On Hierarchies*: Much of mainstream linguistic research explores language
as a hierarchical
system, oftentimes relying strongly on binarity and structural superiority.
This is
a conception that arises in all subfields of linguistics. With this special
topic we hope to
bring together papers which address issues related to hierarchies,
including but not limited
to: “subjecthood” and relations between verbal arguments, quantifier scope,
phonological or
morphological recursion, and empirical evidence for flat or
non-binary-branching structure
in syntax, morphology, and phonology.

*Not-Strictly-Linguistic Interfaces*: Language is not an isolated system.
We invite papers
that explore how language is shaped by non-linguistic factors–for example,
the psychophysics
of audition and vision, the motor system, culture, and modality. Special
attention will be
given to papers that also address interface(s) between non-linguistic and
linguistic systems.
We encourage submissions from psycholinguists, formal linguists, and
researchers from allied
disciplines, such as psychology, anthropology, and cognitive/neuroscience.

*Computational and Experimental Approaches*: Empirical research can serve
to both
challenge and support existing theoretical claims, as well as provide novel
insight into developing
new theories. We invite papers that make use of computational or
methods across the subfields of linguistics, from phonetics and phonology
to semantics and
pragmatics. Special consideration will be given to submissions that unite
theory with computational
and/or experimental approaches.

*Beyond Field Methodologies*: How do language ideologies color our
understanding of language
as a social phenomenon? How can practical issues of fieldwork and social
realities of
language communities spur theoretical and methodological developments? What
insights can
we gain from fieldwork that we cannot get from laboratory settings? We
invite papers addressing
linguist-language community relationships and collaborations, practical
to fieldwork, field experimental methods, and related topics. Special
consideration will be
given to submissions addressing the role of researchers’ or communities’
language ideologies
in language vitality, revitalization, emergence, and change.
