Joseph Greenberg Award 2015

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 2013-2014. Theses are 
eligible if they were accepted by a university (i.e. passed or defended 
or accepted, and not just submitted) between 1 January 2013 and 31 
December 2014.

The award will consist of payment of travel, accommodation and 
registration fee to attend the 11th ALT Conference, to be held in 
Albuquerque, August 1-3, 2015, 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 (or become) 
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 15th 2015. The address for submissions is 
<greenbergaward2015 at gmail.com>. 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:
Denis Creissels
14 avenue Berthelot
69363 LYON cedex O7
