Dear colleagues

may I remind you of the upcoming deadline (MARCH 15) for the

Pre-ALT VII-Workshop Linguistic Typology and Language Documentation

Paris, 24-25 September 2007

Organizers: Nikolaus P. Himmelmann (Ruhr-Universität Bochum) & Nick 
Evans (University of Melbourne)

Details of its overall conception and the focus of individual sessions 
can be found at

Invited speakers:
Emmon Bach, SOAS London
Melissa Bowerman, MPI Nimwegen
Joan Bresnan, Stanford University
Bert Remijsen, University of Edinburgh
Alan Rumsey, RSPAS, ANU Canberra
Bernhard Wälchli, Universität Konstanz
Anthony C. Woodbury, The University of Texas at Austin

Apart from the invited speakers, we are envisaging up to two further 
presentations per session. The time allowed for these presentations is 
30 minutes including discussion. We particularly welcome proposals which 
address the issues outlined in the session descriptions with data from 
actual language documentations.
We anticipate being able to provide funding (fares and accommodation) 
for presenters whose abstracts get accepted.

Applicants should submit a title, abstract of one to two pages, and an 
indication of which of the three sessions they wish their proposal to be 
considered for.

Deadline for abstracts: 15 March.

Further inquiries should be directed to himmelma AT

Best wishes
