LINGUIST List Holiday Recess

Hey everyone!

This is Ken again. I just wanted to wish everyone Happy Holidays. We will be closing on Saturday for the holiday season. We reopen on the 2nd. This simply means that new submissions that come in during this time will not be posted/reviewed.

Emergency submissions can be sent in with ‘URGENT’ in the subject line. However, we will charge double for ‘URGENT’ postings.

We wish you an enjoyable holiday season and a happy new year! We truly appreciate your continued support of LINGUIST List. We couldn’t do this without you.

 

P.S. We had a white elephant gift exchange at the LINGUIST List Holiday party. High quality gifts were exchanged.

(Clare got a 24k dial up modem)

 

Some of the gifts rocked!

(literally a rock)

Linguist List at LSA

Hey everyone,

This is Ken at the LINGUIST List. I just wanted to let all of you know that we will be at the Linguistic Society of America conference in Austin, Texas in January (http://www.linguisticsociety.org/event/lsa-2017-annual-meeting).

We will have a booth with the other organizations at the conference. We look forward to talking to you about the projects housed here at the LINGUIST List (Multitree, LL Map, Geoling, GORILLA and more). We are also open to discussing our posting areas and the website.

Come, visit, and get to know the people behind the LINGUIST List!

“I am currently visiting Indiana University from Würzburg, Germany, where I am a professor of English Linguistics at the Department of British and American Studies. I came to Indiana to give a plenary talk at the 2nd Conference on Central Asian Languages and Linguistics, which was organized by CeLCAR at the School of Global and International Studies. The conference brought together researchers specializing in the languages of the region with the theme “Continuing the Journey: Strengthening the Central Asian Community”. So far, being in Bloomington has given me not only the opportunity to strengthen my ties with scholars working on different languages such as Persian, Uyghur and Armenian, but also the privilege to talk to some faculty members at the Department of Second Language Studies at Indiana University since I have been able to combine the conference trip with a short stay in Bloomington as part of my sabbatical leave.  It was also great to see that the LINGUIST List is not just a list in the digital world, but a real home at the heart of beautiful Bloomington that provides a roof over many dedicated linguists who are doing invaluable service to the field of linguistics.”
