Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics 

Call Deadline: 08-Jul-2018 

Meeting Description:

Main Session:

The workshop hopes to feature papers on topics concerning formal accounts of
meaning and structure with relevance to linguistic theory, and which explore
either core aspects of grammar or some interface phenomena (syntax-semantic,
syntax-prosody, morpho-syntax, morpho-phonology, semantics-pragmatics, lexical
semantics, language acquisition, language change).

Thematic Session: 

Portuguese as a Welcoming Language - Language Teaching in Migration Contexts
Recent migration currents have reignited interest in studies of Portuguese as
a Foreign Language, which due to the specific refugee and humanitarian
migration context has of late been called Portuguese as a Welcoming/Host
Language. Migration from Creole-speaking countries has made it particularly
important for Portuguese-speakers involved in this process to understand the
functioning of Creole languages.
As such, this special thematic session of the Workshop welcomes papers
addressing the teaching of Portuguese as a Foreign/Welcoming/Host Language, as
well as any works on theoretical linguistics with relevance to this topic.

Final Call for Papers:

Call Deadline extended to Sunday, 8 July 2018, 11:59pm  

We invite abstract submissions for 20-minute talks (followed by a 10-minute
discussion) and/or poster presentations (posters should measure approx. 3ft x
4ft or 90cm x 120cm) on any aspect of the topics of the Workshop. 

All abstracts should be anonymous, written in English (*), no more than two
pages in length (including examples and references), font Times New Roman,
12-pt, 8.5x11-inch page setup (= US Letter), with 1-inch margins on all sides.

- Exceptionally, submissions for the thematic session of Portuguese as a
Welcoming Language - Language Teaching in Migration Contexts can be written
(and presented) in Portuguese, if necessary. However, we strongly recommend
giving the talks in English in order to provide more opportunities for dialog.

​Submissions are limited to one individual and one joint abstract per author,
or 2 joint abstracts per author. A limited number of abstracts will also be
accepted for poster session.

​When you submit your abstract, please indicate at the beginning of your
abstract which session you would like to present in (main session or thematic
session) and whether you would like it to be considered 

(i) for a talk only
