Call for papers for Panel at 7th EUROSEAS conference to be held in 
Lisbon on 2-5 July, 2013


Across Southeast Asia, especially since many nations gained political 
independence in the post second world war period, the languages of, 
generally speaking, the dominant ethnic groups have tended to become 
superordinate in many respects (as media of State education, 
broadcasting, the law, among the others). This is the case of Malay and 
Indonesian, Khmer, Thai and Vietnamese among the others. This panel 
examines the effects of the rise of superordinate languages on minority 
endangered languages such as language loss, borrowings as a result of 
external influence, bilingualism, language policy and its links with 
social position. Papers will deal with any subfield of linguistics and 
different approaches and persuasions on the minority languages of South 
East Asia that are facing decline at an unprecedented speed and in 
particular will report on what is being done in terms of documentation 
and conservation.

Send an abstract of a maximum of 400 words by November 30th to the panel organizer:
