14-16 February 2014: North American Conference on Afroasiatic Linguistics (NACAL)
The 42nd annual meeting of the North American Conference on Afroasiatic Linguistics (NACAL 42) will be held at Leiden University in the Netherlands, from Friday 14 February 2014 through Sunday 16 February 2014.
NACAL offers a venue for the presentation and discussion of original research on linguistic topics relevant to the languages of the Afroasiatic phylum (Chadic, Berber, Cushitic, Omotic, Egyptian, and Semitic). Topics related to all aspects of Afroasiatic languages, including phonology, morphology, syntax, comparative linguistics, sociolinguistics, and epigraphy, will be considered. These topics should only be considered as general guidelines and are not intended to be exhaustive.
The theme for NACAL 42 will be ‘classification’. In line with this theme, submissions dealing with the classification and sub-classification of Afroasiatic languages are solicited, though no original submission will be rejected on account of its subject, so long as it relates to the languages of the Afroasiatic phylum and meets the scholarly standards established by previous conferences.
The Keynote speaker this year will be Prof. dr. Maarten Mous and the after dinner reminiscer will be Prof. dr. Harry Stroomer.
Abstracts describing the precise topic treated with a length of approximately 200-300 words can be sent as an electronic version (pdf and MS word document) to firstname.lastname@example.org, or as a paper copy to the following address:
Faculteit der Geesteswetenschappen
