Final call for the ALT's Joseph Greenberg Award

Please note the deadline: January 31, 2013.

The Association for Linguistic Typology's Joseph Greenberg Award recognizes
and honours the best piece of typological research embodied in a doctoral
dissertation or equivalent in 2011-2012. Theses are eligible if they were
accepted by a university (i.e. passed or defended or accepted, and not just
submitted) between 1 January 2011 and 31 December 2012. In addition, theses
submitted for the previous round (2009-2010, when the award was postponed
because of the small number of submissions) will be also be entered for this

The award will consist of (full or partial) payment of travel, per diem
expenses and registration fee to attend the 10th ALT Conference, to be held in
Leipzig, August 15-18, 2013, 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 31st 2013. 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:
