Full Title: Graduate Conference on Areal Linguistics, Grammar & Contacts 

Date: 04-May-2012 - 06-May-2012
Location: Tartu, Estonia 
Contact Person: Andres Karjus
Meeting Email: arealling at gmail.com
Web Site: http://arealling.ut.ee 

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Typology 

Other Specialty: Areal Linguistics 

Call Deadline: 31-Jan-2012 

Meeting Description:

Update: the abstract submission deadline has been extended. Also, we are delighted to announce that free accommodation is available during the conference for a limited number of speakers - see our website for details.

The conference is aimed at MA and PhD students, postdocs and young researchers with interests in language contact related topics, areal linguistics and typology. The purpose of the conference is to offer aspiring linguists the chance to present their work, receive broad-based feedback, and get acquainted with the perspectives and research themes beyond the borders of one's homeland. We also see this gathering as an international meeting place for young linguists who share similar research interests or work on the same languages. 

Invited Plenary Speakers:

Maria Koptjevskaja-Tamm (Stockholm University)
Axel Holvoet (University of Warsaw, Vilnius University)
Florian Siegl (University of Tartu) 

Please refer to the conference web page at http://arealling.ut.ee for updates, practical information and guidelines on how to reach the conference venue. 

Call for Papers:

In response to a number of requests, the abstract submission deadline has been extended until the end of January. Should you have any questions, consult the FAQ section at the conference website or contact the organizers. We invite talks dealing with research topics centered around (but not necessarily limited to) the following themes:

- Contact-induced phonological, morphological, syntactic and lexical change
- Lexical and grammatical replication, shared grammaticalization
- Typological investigations and wider perspectives on linguistic areas
- Circum-Baltic languages in general
- Language contact and sociolinguistics
- Language contact and dialectal variation
- Pidgins, creoles, language mixing and shift
- L1 and L2 acquisition related matters in connection with the overall themes
- Globalization and its effect on minor(ity) languages
- Synchronic, diachronic and panchronic approaches to language contact and linguistic areas

The selection of speakers from the abstract pool will be made on a competitive basis, giving priority to original and generally interesting topics regardless of the level of the student. An effort will be made to reach a balance in terms of different subject languages and theoretical approaches. All of the selected speakers will be notified in February 2012 (and given a chance to revise their abstract before publication in the conference booklet).

Please submit your abstract using the EasyAbs interface at:
