Meeting Description:

International Symposium on the Languages of Java
6-7 June 2013
Bung Hatta University
Padang, Sumatra, Indonesia

The island of Java is home to several major languages. Javanese--spoken mainly in Central and East Java - is the world’s 10th or 11th largest language in number of native speakers. It has one of the oldest and fullest recorded histories of any Austronesian language. It also has been of considerable interest to scholars because of the system of speech levels or speech styles found in a number of varieties of Javanese. Sundanese - spoken in West Java - has over 27 million speakers, and Madurese - spoken on the neighboring island of Madura and throughout parts of East Java - has over 13 million speakers. Varieties of both of these languages have speech level systems and such systems can also be found in the geographically, historically, and linguistically related languages on the neighboring islands of Bali and Lombok. Each of these languages displays a range of dialects, isolects, continua, and contact varieties and yet they have received relatively little attention from linguists. With this symposium, we offer an opportunity for scholars working on any aspect of Javanese, Sundanese, Madurese, Balinese and Sasak to come together and share their findings. We aim to encourage and promote continued research on these important and unique languages. 

Please note that the 17th International Symposium on Malay-Indonesian Linguistics (ISMIL 15) will be held immediately following ISLOJ, also in Padang, on 8-9 June, 2013. For more information see: http://www.eva.mpg.de/~gil/ismil/17.
