Meeting Description:

We invite graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to the first
international edition of the conference Linguistics Prague (formerly
Lingvistika Praha).

Linguistics Prague is a conference aimed at graduate students of linguistics
and related fields. Successfully running since 2013, the conference will be
opened to international audience for the first time in 2017 with English as
the language of the conference. The focus/leitmotif of the conference is
empirical research of language and its methodology. We encourage presentations
of original data oriented research concerned with different aspects of
language structure and use, as well as discussions of methodological
groundings of the 'empirical turn' in linguistics.

The conference takes place at the Faculty of Arts of Charles University in the
very center of Prague, Thursday 27 April to Saturday 29 April 2017.

The event will consist of 2 plenary talks, 4 tutorial workshops and a general
session for oral presentations and posters.

Plenary Speakers:

- Ulrike Mosel (Christian Albrechts Universität, Kiel)
- Pamela Perniss (University of Brighton)

Tutorial Workshops:

1) Learning how to ask - a condensed introduction to field methods (Florian
2) Acceptability judgement task: design and interpretation (Jakub Dotlačil)
3) Phonetics-phonology interface: what is phonological? (Michaela Hejná)
4) Multimodal corpora: annotation practices, tools, and analysis of the
(multimodal) spoken and sign language corpus data (Jakub Jehlička)

discussion. Authors of posters will be given a 1 minute speaking slot to
