Call for Papers
After last year's great success, we are pleased to announce The 2nd Postgraduate and Academic Researchers in Linguistics at York (PARLAY) Conference. This one-day conference is designed to give linguistics postgraduates from all research areas an opportunity to present and discuss their research in a friendly and intellectually stimulating setting at the University of York.
The conference will be held on Friday 12th September 2014 in the Berrick Saul Building, which acts as a vibrant hub of research for postgraduates in the arts and humanities. A locally-sourced lunch will be provided, along with refreshments throughout the day. A conference dinner will be held in York in the evening, to which all delegates are invited.
We invite postgraduates, doctoral students and early career researchers to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations on any language, across a range of topics in language and linguistics. This may include, but is not restricted to:
Applied Linguistics * Conversation Analysis * Corpus Linguistics * Discourse Analysis * Forensic Linguistics * Historical Linguistics * Language Acquisition * Morphology * Phonetics * Phonology * Pragmatics * Psycholinguistics * Semantics * Sociolinguistics * Syntax
We are delighted to welcome Professor Peter Sells (University of York) and Dr John Williams (University of Cambridge) as plenary speakers for this event.
