2nd Announcement: Illinois Language and Linguistics Society

I’ve been asked to announce this again, since the deadline for submitting abstracts is coming up in a couple weeks…

The 4th annual meeting of the Illinois Language and Linguistics Society will be held April 13-15, 2012
at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  ILLS is a general
linguistics conference open to all subfields. This year’s meeting will
include a special session Saturday, April 14th on the topic ‘Discourse and Pragmatics‘ [An opportunity for Discourse students to submit their term paper projects, maybe?–MP].

ILLS
is currently accepting abstracts for topics in general linguistics
although special consideration will be given to papers that fit the
theme for the special session.  Deadline for submission is February 12th.

The top 4 submitted student abstracts will be awarded $200 to cover conference travel costs.

All
talks will be given 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for
questions. Abstract submission guidelines and instructions can be found
here.

Please contact lso.illinois@gmail.com with any questions you may have.

Betty J. Birner (Northern Illinois University)
Paul Kiparsky (Stanford University)
Jonathan MacDonald (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
