CALL FOR PAPERS Abstracts are invited for presentations addressing issues of significance for cognitive linguistics with some bearing on data from the Slavic languages. As long as there is a cognitive orientation, papers may be on synchronic or diachronic topics in any of the traditional areas of phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, discourse analysis, or sociolinguistics. In addition to the Slavic Languages, relevant papers on other languages of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union are also acceptable. Abstracts may be submitted up until the deadline of April 8, 2011 to sclcAbstracts@gmail.com. Abstracts should be approximately 500 words, but strict word limits are not required. Notification of acceptance will be provided by May 31, 2011. The abstract should be submitted as a word or pdf file as an attachment to an email message with “SCLC abstract submission” in the subject headline. Abstracts should be anonymous, but the author’s name, affiliation and contact information should be included in the email message.
Most presentations at SCLC are given in English, but may be in the native (Slavic) language of the presenter. However, if the presentation is not to be made in English we ask that you provide an abstract in English in addition to an abstract in any other SCLA language. Each presentation will be given 20 minutes and will be followed by a 10-minute discussion period.
