Institute of Linguistics, Academia Sinica

The 14th International Symposium on Chinese Languages and Linguistics (IsCLL-14) will be held in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the Institute of Linguistics, Academia Sinica, on June 4-6, 2014. For nearly 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, but not limited, to the following themes: (1) methodology in genetic linguistics, (2) language relationships among Chinese dialects, (3) genetic relationships among East-Asian Languages, and (4) typology and genetic relationships. Please submit your abstract via the online submission system on the IsCLL-14 website. Selected papers will be published in a Special Issue in Language and Linguistics, an SSCI- and A&HCI-indexed journal.
