*Workshop on East Asian Languages: Call for Papers
March 3, 2012*

The Linguistics department at the University of California, Santa Barbara
announces its 18th Workshop on East Asian Languages (WEAL). The workshop is
an informal meeting where participants can present and discuss issues on
languages in East Asia, including Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. WEAL 2012
will take place on Saturday, March 3rd at the McCune Conference Room, 6020

Abstracts are invited for talks on any topic in East Asian linguistics. This
is an informal workshop for work in progress: presentations could be on the
initial results and other issues arising from ongoing projects, rather than
finished papers. We especially welcome proposals from UCSB, UCLA and other
departments in the Southern California area. We encourage both students and
faculty to participate.

Talks will be 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for discussion. Abstracts
should be 500 words or less (excluding examples and/or references) and can
be submitted by hard copy or email. Please indicate your source(s) and
type(s) of data in the abstract (e.g., recordings, texts, conversational,
elicited, narrative, etc.). For co-authored papers, please indicate who
plans to present the paper as well as who will be in attendance.

Please include the following information along with your abstract: (1) your
name; (2) affiliation; (3) mailing address; (4) phone number; (5) email
address; (6) title of your paper.
