Meeting Description:

The field of Language Documentation and Description (LDD) has been growing in recent years in Europe, the Americas, and Australia. It is, however, still in its early stages of development in the Asian region. The Department of Linguistics of The University of Hong Kong is deeply involved in the study, analysis and description of languages of East, South and Southeast Asia (ESSA). This includes larger, smaller and endangered languages, as well as contact languages.

With this conference we want to focus on a documentary approach to languages of the Asian region. We want to discuss and develop new perspectives for the description and documentation of Asian languages and uses of the resulting data and analyses. As part of our drive to develop documentary linguistics at HKU, we will host a 4-day event: the first two days will offer an intensive workshop in LDD training; the latter two days will be dedicated to a symposium on documentary linguistics.

Call for Papers:

We invite papers and/or posters on documentation of minority languages of the ESSA region; documentary and descriptive works of contact and endangered ecologies worldwide; theoretical and empirical advances in LDD; applied documentation (language support, revitalization, pedagogy, lexicography, app development etc.)

We invite papers and/or posters on:

1) Documentation of minority languages of the ESSA region
2) Documentary and descriptive works of contact and endangered ecologies worldwide
3) Theoretical and empirical advances in LDD
4) Applied documentation: language support, revitalization, pedagogy, lexicography, app development etc.
