The Eighth

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:
