2nd Call for Papers & Sessions:

 

LAGB 2017:

 

The LAGB welcomes submissions on any topic in the field of linguistics. We particularly welcome papers from areas of linguistics that have not been well represented in previous meetings in order to capture the diversity of linguistics research currently undertaken in the UK and beyond.

 

All abstracts will be blind-peer-reviewed by an international committee of reviewers. Both members and non-members are invited to offer papers for the meeting.  The length for papers delivered at the LAGB 2016 meeting is 20 minutes (plus 10 minutes' discussion).

 

The deadline for submissions is Saturday 1 April 2017. Notification of acceptance will be made in late May 2017.

 

Abstracts can be submitted to be included in the general sessions or as part of a themed session (see website for details).
