As you all know, Aceh and North Sumatra were recently hit by a natural
disaster of horrific proportions. Fortunately, Maninjau and its environs
were spared. We believe that by coming to Sumatra and participating in
ISMIL 9, we can show our support to the people of Sumatra in their time
of need, and also give a small yet meaningful boost to the islands
economy. If you wish to learn more about our activities in support of
the relief operations in Aceh, please visit the following website:




The Ninth

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. 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.


Persons wishing to present a paper at the symposium are invited to
submit a one-page electronic abstract to David Gil at the following address:
