Papers and posters may be on any linguistic or philological aspect of any
historical or modern Germanic language or dialect, including English (to the
Early Modern period) and the extraterritorial varieties. Papers from the full
range of linguistic and philological subfields, including phonetics,
phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics,
stylistics, metrics, language acquisition, contact, and change, as well as
differing theoretical perspectives, are welcome. All abstracts will undergo
anonymous review.

Abstracts must be submitted electronically in PDF format at
