Call Deadline: 15-Feb-2007 

Meeting Description:

Invited Speakers:

Jack Chambers (University of Toronto) 
Heinz Giegerich (University of Edinburgh)  
Carlos Gussenhoven (Queen Mary, University of London)
Geoffrey K. Pullum (University of California, Santa Cruz)

Conference Description:

The attention devoted to the linguistic phenomenon (or phenomena) known as English has resulted in a broad body of work in diverse research traditions, illustrating both the individual characteristics of the many Englishes, and the contributions that an understanding of these linguistic systems can make to our general knowledge of the human language faculty.

Our aims are (i) to encourage the cross-fertilisation of ideas between different frameworks and research traditions, all of which address the linguistics of English, and, furthermore, (ii) to promote discussion among researchers interested in linguistic theories (phonologists, syntacticians, variationists etc.) regarding what we mean when we use the word 'English' to describe the linguistic phenomena which we work to explain.

This conference aims, therefore, to provide a platform for work which deals with any aspect of the structure of contemporary varieties of English, in terms of their phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics etc., in any way which aims to be explanatory. Work on any variety (or number of varieties) is welcome, including variationist work which engages with issues of linguistic structure. We do not envisage this including work which is purely historical, but work which brings in diachrony in order to explain the structure of Present-Day English is certainly welcome. 

Second Call for Papers

Linguistic Field(s): any area of the structure of contemporary varieties of English: phonology, phonetics, morphology, syntax, semantics, discourse, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, dialectology, etc.

Subject Language: English
 
Call Deadline: 15-Feb-2007
