The Joseph Greenberg Award 2009

The Association for Linguistic Typology(ALT)'s Joseph Greenberg Award
recognizes and honours the best piece of typological research embodied in a
doctoral dissertation or equivalent in 2007-2008. Theses are eligible if
they were accepted by a university between 1 January 2007 and 31 December
2008. The award will consist of payment of travel, per diem expenses and
registration fee to attend the ALT VIII Conference, to be held in Berkeley,
California, July 23-26, 2009, and to present a synopsis or element of the
prize-winning work as a plenary lecture at that meeting.

The Joseph Greenberg Award was named to remember Joseph Greenberg's
(1915-2001) fundamental contributions to typology and the interest he
showed in encouraging young researchers. Between 1998 and 2006, it was
known as the ''ALT Junior Award''.

To be eligible, those submitting their dissertation must be members of the
Association for Linguistic Typology (ALT). They are asked to submit their
manuscript by email in pdf format, with all non-standard fonts in Unicode,
to the Chair of the Jury, to arrive no later than January 31, 2009. If this
proves technically difficult, the candidate is asked to discuss the problem
with the chair. A jury, consisting of about ten ALT members, will be
appointed by ALT's President, appropriate to the work submitted.

The chair will be
