The deadline for the submission of abstracts has been extended to 15  January, 2011. 
Notification of acceptance will be sent out by February 1, 2011.

The attention devoted to the linguistics of the English language has resulted
in a broad body of work in diverse research traditions. The aim of the ICLCE
conference is to encourage the cross-fertilisation of ideas between different
frameworks and research traditions, all of which may address any aspect of
the linguistics of English. Previous ICLCE conferences were held in
Edinburgh (2005), Toulouse (2007) and London (2009) along the same
lines. We aim for the Osnabrueck conference to build on the success of
those events.
