Conference description and call for papers

The purpose of this conference is to stimulate and advance  
typological studies of Afroasiatic languages. The conference will  
advance our understanding of which typological features are  
associated with Afroasiatic as a whole and which are associated with  
individual branches of Afroasiatic.         We invite typological  
papers concerning phonological, morphological, and syntactic issues  
within the whole Afroasiatic phylum or within one or more of its  
families. We also invite papers dealing with individual Afroasiatic  
languages from a typological perspective.

Please send e-mail abstracts of one to two pages to Zygmunt  
Frajzyngier (Zygmunt.Frajzyngier at colorado.edu) or Erin Shay  
(Erin.Shay at colorado.edu) by 31 January 2006. We will also accept  
paper copies of abstracts, provided they arrive by 31 January. Send  
paper copies of abstracts to:
