Call for papers: WSCLA

We the WSCLA planning committee are pleased to announce that the University of Arizona will host the Workshop on the Structure and Constituency of the Languages of the Americas this spring, from January 23-25, 2015.

This conference is a unique event that brings together linguists working with any of the indigenous languages of North, Central and South America. This will be the first time it is hosted at the University of Arizona (and high time too!) and also the 20th anniversary of this wonderful conference.

Abstracts are invited for papers in any area of formal linguistics (including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics) within any theoretical framework. We welcome papers that address diachronic, sociolinguistic, or applied topics from a formal perspective, and we are especially interested in papers seeking to correlate the interests of formal linguists and the concerns of indigenous communities.

Abstracts should be submitted to the EasyChair website at this link:
