The 5th Annual Linguistics Conference at the University of Georgia (LCUGA5)
October 12-13, 2018

The Linguistics Society at the University of Georgia (LSUGA) announces the 5th
Annual Linguistics Conference at UGA (LCUGA5).  The central focus of this
year's conference is “Language in the Margins”, and we are hosting Dr.

the University of Chicago and Dr. Donna Jo Napoli from Swarthmore College as

2nd Call for Papers:

The Linguistics Society at the University of Georgia (LSUGA) announces the 5th
Annual Linguistics Conference at UGA (LCUGA5). Following in the tradition of
previous LCUGAs, we invite presentations that span linguistics subfields as
well as incorporate interdisciplinary research from other areas in the
sciences and humanities. The central focus of this year's conference is
''Language in the Margins''. We encourage creative interpretation of this
focus and welcome papers that can include case studies of traditionally
marginalized speech communities; studies of the language of gender,
particularly of marginalized groups; lesser studied theoretical concepts;
interface conditions and phase theory, and other marginal theories;
typological studies of marginalized languages; studies of periphery;
diachronic analysis of lesser-studied time periods and geographic areas;
analysis of sign languages and other non-verbal systems of communications; and
studies of pidgins, creoles, and other typically stigmatized languages.
Preference will be given to submissions that address interpretations of our
central focus, linguistic margins;  however,  we also encourage  presentations
on any topic relevant to the field of linguistics.

We are proud to welcome the following plenary speakers to LCUGA5:

Dr. Salikoko Mufwene, University of Chicago
Dr. Donna Jo Napoli, Swarthmore College

One $100 travel award for best student abstract will be awarded at the
conference. All papers presented will be eligible for publication in our LCUGA
proceedings.

Applicants are welcome to submit up to two abstracts, one single-authored and
one co-authored contribution. Presenters will be allotted 20 minutes, plus
5-10 minutes of discussion. Abstracts should not exceed 500 words (not
including title and references); any examples should be incorporated into the
text of the abstract with relevant figures, charts, and/or graphs included on
a single separate page. Abstracts must be in Word (.doc/.docx) format, and
must not include any personally identifying information. Submissions that do
not comply with the above guidelines will not be considered for acceptance. 

Please submit all abstracts via EasyAbs at
http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/lcuga5 by August 1, 2018. For questions and
inquiries regarding LCUGA5, please see our website
