The *10th Joseph Greenberg Award* organized by the Association for
Linguistic Typology recognizes and honors the best piece of typological
research embodied in a doctoral dissertation or equivalent for the two-year
period, 2019-2020. Theses are eligible if they were accepted by a
university between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2020 (i.e. passed or
defended or accepted, and not just submitted). The award will consist of
payment of travel, per diem expenses and registration fee to attend the ALT
XIV Conference, to be held in Austin, Texas, USA in December, 2022, and the
opportunity 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) at the time of submission, or
registered by the time of the conference.
