Final Call for Abstracts

The Seventh

27-28 June, 2003
Nijmegen, the Netherlands


Papers presented at ISMIL are concerned with the Malay/Indonesian language
in any of its varieties.  In addition to the standardized versions of Bahasa
Melayu and Bahasa Indonesia, papers are particularly welcome dealing with
non-canonical isolects such as regional dialects of Malay and Indonesian,
contact varieties, and other closely related Malayic languages.  Of special
interest are papers dealing with language contact.  Papers may be in any of
the subfields of linguistics, and may represent variegated approaches and
diverse theoretical persuasions. Presentations at ISMIL are delivered in
English, as is befitting an international symposium.


Persons whose papers are selected for presentation will receive free room
and board at the conference site.


Persons wishing to present a paper at the symposium are invited to
submit a one-page abstract to Hein Steinhauer at the following address:
