Dear all,

The 26th edition of the conference will be held simultaneously at INALCO (Paris, France), and at the Centre for Linguistics and Cultural Studies, Central Institute of Technology in Kokrajhar (Assam, India), September 2nd to 4th, 2020.  We will videoconference for 4 hours each day (2 general sessions and 1 plenary talk), with the rest of the program being local.  

Papers are invited which address any aspect of the languages and linguistics of the Trans-Himalayan area. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, typology, documentation, including field reports and empirically-based ethnographic studies, and language technology/computational linguistics. We also welcome submissions from other fields (such as history, archaeology, ethnobotany, genetics and anthropology) which can relate to the history and development of Himalayan languages. Papers are not limited to the Trans-Himalayan language family, but may treat any language traditionally spoken within the Trans-Himalayan area, including Indo-Aryan, Tai-Kadai, Austro-Asiatic, and Hmong-Mien languages, as well as isolates, pidgins and creoles. 

The special theme for the conference is reduplication.  Other topics are of course welcome.

Abstracts should be no more than 500 words, single-spaced, exclusive of data and references (if any), and should be written in English. Abstracts should be submitted via EasyChair, https://easychair.org/cfp/hls26

The submission deadline for paper abstracts is February 29th, 2020. 

Best wishes,
Bihung Brahma, Guillaume Jacques, Aimée Lahaussois
