Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition 

Call Deadline: 22-Jan-2007 

Meeting Description:

Human language is the product of evolved mechanisms that develop in supportive environments. To understand language, we need to improve present understandings of evolutionary and developmental processes responsible for its emergence. This conference, 'The Emergence of Language in the Child and in the Species,' proposes to bring together leading scholars in the broad area of language and communication, with a focus on developmental and evolutionary issues. Abstracts are welcome in such areas as: language acquisition in children, computational modeling, evolution of language, comparative studies, gesture and sign language, biology of language and cognition. While papers on the main topic are particularly welcome, individuals are encouraged to submit abstracts on any subject in theoretical and applied linguistics. 

Final Call for Papers

Please note that the deadline for abstracts has been extended to January 22, 2007.

Abstracts should be anonymous, titled, single-spaced and not more than 425 words in length. Please send abstract as a camera-ready attachment (in a Microsoft Word file, if possible) to the conference coordinator, Johanna Woltjer (jwoltjer at earthlink.net). Within the email, indicate your name, affiliation, address, email address, title of paper, and adio-visual equipment needed. Alternatively, the abstract and speaker information may be sent via regular mail to J. Woltjer, 511 W. 112th Street, #14, New York, 10025-1634, USA.

Those wishing to propose panels or special sessions should contact the conference chair, Kathleen McClure (cathymcclure at yahoo.com).

Time allotted will be 20 minutes for delivery of the paper plus 5 minutes discussion.
