The purpose of this symposium is to showcase current investigations on language, and to cultivate a community of language researchers throughout the country. We welcome a wide array of topics across all languages and disciplines related to linguistics, as it is our goal to create an open and inclusive symposium to promote dialogue between all types of language research.
