Call for Abstracts

The Sixteenth
(ISMIL 16)

22-24 June 2012
Kelaniya, Sri Lanka


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.  For this meeting, we anticipate a specific focus on 
Sri Lankan Malay.  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 abstract in electronic form (preferably pdf, but 
MsWord also acceptable) to David Gil at the following address:
