Linguistic Field(s): Linguistic Theories 

Call Deadline: 20-Jan-2007 

Meeting Description:

In recent years, the study of the interaction between different levels of linguistic knowledge has attracted increasing interest. In order to speak or understand a language we need to access different mechanisms whose interaction cannot be fully appreciated from a non-integrated approach. This workshop aims to bring together scholars who have been working on these issues providing cross-section, cutting-edge accounts of developments in the interfaces between phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. The workshop will provide a forum for discussion of methods, theoretical perspectives, and accounts of the interaction between components of the language faculty.

Special Thematic Sessions:

We would like to encourage submission of papers and posters for two special sessions dealing with:
(i) experimental approaches for the investigation of interfaces;
(ii) implications of findings on interface issues in the applied linguistics field.

Invited Speakers (abstract selection committee):

Artemis Alexiadou, University of Stuttgart, Stuttgart
Andrea Gualmini, McGill University, Montreal
Carlos Gussenhoven, Radbound University, Nijmegen
Heidi Harley, University of Arizona, Tucson
Kyle Johnson, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Jamal Ouhalla, University College Dublin, Dublin
Lisa Travis, McGill University, Montreal
John Wilson, University of Ulster, Jordanstown 

Requirement for abstract submission:

Abstracts can be up to two pages long including references, data and/or 
illustrations. Abstracts should be emailed no later than January 20, 2007 as an attachment (PDF format) to the following two addresses:
r.folli at ulster.ac.uk
c.ulbrich at ulster.ac.uk

Please forward abstracts to both addresses.

The subject line of the email should be ''ONLI''.
Authors should include the following pieces of information in the body of the email:
title of the paper, 
name of the author(s) 
email address for correspondence

Submission is limited to one single authored paper and one joint authored paper.

If you wish to be considered for one of the two special sessions (see above) this should be indicated clearly in the body of the email.

Publication of a book from the workshop with a major publisher is planned.
