Call For Papers

SLE2's First Call for Proposals on Workshops and Abstracts on Talks and 
Poster Sessions now has a deadline of 30 September 2010 for all 
submissions. Workshop Proposals email address: isle2wtp at bu.edu

The New England Committee invites workshop proposals that address 
approaches applicable to one or more fields of linguistic analysis.

This call for proposals aims at continuing the tradition of excellence
established in Freiburg, 2008. The workshops at ISLE1 had clear themes, 
almost all the talks offered complementing one another. For example, the 
workshop on Linguistic Methodology included approaches to corpora and 
text: techniques for compilation, quantitative analyses, lexical sampling, 
identifying phrasal units, and framing patterns of pragmatic exchange. The 
group of eight talks for this workshop also sparked many questions and 
ideas for further study across genres, dialects, varieties, both current and 
past. ISLE2 plans to offer a platform for on-going explorations in 
methodology, generated at ISLE1 or elsewhere.

While there is a preference for workshops on method, ISLE2 also welcomes
excellent proposals on other themes.

The Organizing Committee and the Executive Board of ISLE suggest the 
following format in drafting a proposal:

1. a 2-page exposition of the theme(s) that the workshop will address, 
including where appropriate, reference to specific corpora or texts for 
2. a 1-page bibliography;
3. an estimate of the likely number of talks that the workshop will 
4. a list of participants and their affiliations (if already known);
5. list of equipment needed for presentation.
6. length of papers (up to twenty minutes plus ten minutes for discussion),
and length of the workshop (up to three hours and a half to four hours. 
There may be a coffee break or even a lunch break.)

Participants planning panels and workshops should contact Eugene Green 
and Bruce Fraser at isle2wtp at bu.edu

Talks and Poster Sessions
The New England Committee in New England invites abstracts for talks and 
poster sessions. You are free to choose from several fields of English 
language study, but the thesis of your abstract will be most welcome if it 
centers on matters of methodology. Talks will be allotted twenty minutes for 
presentation and ten minutes for discussion. Separate poster sessions 
(each lasting thirty minutes) will allow presenters to discuss their research 
with delegates.

In aiming at some coherence for the talks and poster sessions at the 
meeting, the Committee has a preference for abstracts centered on any of 
the following fields: corpus linguistics, typology, perceptual dialectology, and 
pragmatics. These fields include such topics as regional, social, and cultural 
patterns in dialects, varieties, and Standard English, patterns of exchange 
in written and oral registers, phonological change, and metrics from Old 
English on. Though the listed fields and topics are preferred, the committee 
welcomes excellent presentations on other issues too. Abstracts should 

1. a 1-page exposition of the theme for the talk or poster session;
2. a brief, supportive bibliography;
3. a list of equipment needed for presentation.

Please submit two copies of your abstract as an email attachment (in plain 
text or PDF format). One attachment should contain only the proposal or 
abstract, the other only the author and title of the proposal or abstract. Your 
proposal should be sent to Eugene Green and Bruce Fraser at the following 
address: isle2wtp at bu.edu.

All speakers at the conference must be members of ISLE.
