Call for papers
The Formal Approaches to Japanese Linguistics (FAJL) conferences provide the primary venue for cutting-edge theoretical work in all domains of Japanese linguistics. The conference highlights the contributions made to the understanding of human language in general by the study of the Japanese language.
We are very pleased to announce that ICU is hosting the 7th meeting of FAJL from June 27-29, 2014, as a part of ICU's 60th anniversary event. This meeting is co-sponsored by NINJAL (National Institute of Japanese Language and Linguistics).
We invite submissions on any area of formal Japanese linguistics (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics). Submissions should target formally explicit, verifiable, theoretical proposals concerning Japanese using any kind of evidence (judgments, formal experiments, acquisition or corpus data, simulations, etc.). The submissions should be planned for a 20 minute talk (with an additional 10 minutes for questions) or for a poster session.
Abstracts should be anonymous, written in English, not exceed one A4 (or U.S. Letter) page with 2.5cm (or 1 inch) margins on each side, and be set in at least 12 pt. Times New Roman font. Additional data, figures, and references may be included on a second page - no more than two pages total are permitted.
Abstracts should be submitted through Linguist list.
If you have questions, please write to icu.linguistics_at_gmail.com.
Banquet: the evening of the 28th (Sat) to be held on the ICU campus.
Registration fees: TBA.
The online system for registration will be available soon.
As was the case for the previous FAJL meetings, a proceedings volume will be published from MITWPL.
