The Joseph Greenberg Award 2011

The Association for Linguistic Typology's Joseph Greenberg Award
recognizes and honours the best piece of typological research embodied
in a doctoral dissertation or equivalent in 2009-2010. Theses are
eligible if they were accepted by a university between 1 January 2009
and 31 December 2010. The award will consist of payment of travel, per
diem expenses and registration fee to attend the ALT IX Conference, to
be held in Hong Kong, July 21-24, 2011, and to present a synopsis or
element of the prize-winning work as a plenary lecture at that meeting.

The Joseph Greenberg Award was named to remember Joseph Greenberg's
(1915-2001) fundamental contributions to typology and the interest he
showed in encouraging young researchers. Between 1998 and 2006, it was
known as the "ALT Junior Award".

To be eligible, those submitting their dissertation must be members of
the Association for Linguistic Typology (ALT). They are asked to submit
their manuscript by email in pdf format, with all non-standard fonts in
Unicode, to the chair of the jury, to arrive no later than January 31st
2011. If this proves technically difficult, the candidate is asked to
discuss the problem with the chair. A jury, consisting of about ten ALT
members, will be appointed by ALT's president, appropriate to the work

The chair will be:

Isabelle Bril
Laboratoire LACITO
7, rue Guy Môquet (bât. D)
94801 Villejuif Cedex
