>Interfaces in Language
>Conference to be held at the University of Kent, Canterbury, 23-25 April
>2007
>
>Within language studies we are constantly confronted with boundaries and
>interfaces: for example between languages, between countries, between
>dialect areas, and between various aspects and components of linguistic
>study. This conference aims to examine where these occur, to see whether
>boundaries can and need to be drawn or grey areas declared, and to map out
>further areas of investigation.
>
>Proposals are requested for papers which look at the interplay of
>traditionally identified elements of linguistic study under the general
>rubric of interfaces, for example
>
>• contact linguistics, centrism and language conflict
>• natural and artificial languages
>• any two or all of syntax, semantics, pragmatics
>• phonology and morphology, e.g. Welsh mutations
>• prosody, structure, lexis and pragmatics
>• synchrony and diachrony
>• dialectology and sociolinguistics
>• written and oral registers
>• pedagogical linguistics: the 4 skills
>• the lang./lit. divide
>
>The organisation of panels will be finalised when all proposals have been
>received.
>Keynote speaker: Marc van Oostendorp (Meertens Instituut, Amsterdam).
>Organising Committee: Sandra Dφring, David Hornsby, John Partridge, Nicola
>Schmidt-Renfree
>Please send expressions of interest as soon as possible, preferably by
