Call for the ALT's Joseph Greenberg Award

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 2011-2012. Theses are eligible if they were accepted by a university (i.e. passed or defended or accepted, and not just submitted) between 1 January 2011 and 31 December 2012. The award will consist of payment of travel, per diem expenses and registration fee to attend the ALT 10th Conference, to be held in Leipzig, August 15-18, 2013, 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  2013. 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 submitted.

The chair will be:
Jae Jung Song
Department of English & Linguistics
University of Otago
PO Box 56, Dunedin
