The conference will include papers encompassing the full range of subfields in Germanic linguistics, including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, sociolinguistics, anthropological linguistics, language acquisition, psycholinguistics, and language contact and change.
In addition to papers focused on German, we especially welcome papers dealing with the full range of Germanic languages, for example Dutch, Luxembourgish, Yiddish, Afrikaans, the Scandinavian languages, and others.
The deadline for abstracts of 200-250 words is 3 October 2011 (to be sent to Kristine Horner on firstname.lastname@example.org). Notification of acceptance will be by 1 November 2011.
The Sheffield team will be liaising with the FGLS committee to sort out details concerning fees. Further information will be posted to the conference website in due course – watch this space:http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/german/newsandevents/conferences.html.
