CfP: The Olomouc Linguistics Colloquium, 7 – 9 June, 2018 (Olinco 2018) [Final call]

The Olomouc Linguistics Colloquium (Olinco) is a general linguistics conference held biannually at Palacký University Olomouc, Czech Republic. It covers synchronic or diachronic aspects of grammar, phonology, semantics, and pragmatics. Papers may treat language description, language acquisition, performance, translation, or language deficits.

The general topic of the conference is language use and linguistic structure. The contributions  are expected to include justified proposals for linguistic structure, and at the same time relate these structures to some aspect of language use, such as information structure, phonetics, or meaning.

The conference also includes several specialized thematic sessions.

We welcome proposals for oral presentations and posters in the form of abstracts related to the general topic and/or a workshop topic. Abstract submission guidelines are given below. Poster sessions will be an integral part of the conference program. The language of the conference is English. All abstract submissions will be anonymously reviewed by an  international committee of linguists. Participants are allowed to present only one single-authored paper. In addition, they may also have joint papers (but not as the first author).

Thematic sessions are:

– Parameters in the 21st Century | Anna Cardinaletti (Universita Ca Foscari, Italy)

– Empirical approaches to contrastive linguistics and translation studies | Volker Gast (Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, Germany), Vahram Atayan (Heidelberg University, Germany) & Torsten Leuschner (Ghent University, Belgium)

– A Study in Nanosyntax | Michal Starke (Tromsoe University, Norway)

– Nature of change | František Kratochvíl (Palacký University Olomouc, Czech Republic)
