Chinese Languages and Linguistics (IsCLL-14)

June 4-6, 2014



The 14th International Symposium on Chinese Languages and Linguistics (IsCLL-14) will be held on June 4-6, 2014, hosted by the Institute of Linguistics, Academia Sinica. For two decades, the biennial IsCLL conferences have brought together linguists working on Chinese languages and linguistics, each time under a specified conference theme. With the main theme “Genetic Relationships among East-Asian Languages”, the upcoming IsCLL-14 will be devoted to one of the core issues of historical linguistics with a focus on genetic relationships of languages such as Sino-Tibetan, Austronesian, Kam-Tai, Miao-Yao, Mon-Khmer, and Altaic languages. You are cordially invited to submit abstracts related to the following themes:

Methodology in genetic linguistics

Language relationships among Chinese dialects

Genetic Relationships among East-Asian Languages

Typology and genetic relationships

We also welcome submissions on other topics.

Abstracts should be anonymous. Please do not reveal author identity in the abstract or filename. Abstracts should not exceed 4 pages in length (references and data may be appended to the abstract). Submissions are limited to two abstracts per author, at most one single-authored and one co-authored abstracts. Please submit your abstract via the IsCLL-14 online submission system. Authors with their abstracts accepted are committed to submitting full papers written exclusively for IsCLL-14. Registration fee will be waived for one author of each accepted paper.
