LDLT3 conference

The third biennial Language Documentation and Linguistic Theory conference (LDLT3) aims to bring together researchers working on linguistic theory and language documentation and description, with a particular focus on innovative work on under-described or endangered languages.

The conference will be held at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London from 18-20 November 2011. In addition to parallel sessions on the 19 and 20 November 2011, the conference will be preceded by a satellite Workshop on Language Documentation and Archiving on 18 November 2011. The theme of the LDLT3 conference is ‘Empirical methodologies that drive forward theory building’; submissions addressing this theme in relation to languages of Asia are especially welcome.

The plenary speakers for LDLT3 are Prof. Balthasar Bickel, Leipzig University and Prof. Anju Saxena, Uppsala University. The plenary speaker for the Workshop on Language Documentation and Archiving is Prof. Anthony Woodbury, University of Texas at Austin

Further information, including details of abstract submission and deadlines, is available on the conference website.

Here at Endangered Languages and Cultures, we fully welcome your opinion, questions and comments on any post, and all posts will have an active comments form. However if you have never commented before, your comment may take some time before it is approved. Subsequent comments from you should appear immediately.

We will not edit any comments unless asked to, or unless there have been html coding errors, broken links, or formatting errors. We still reserve the right to censor any comment that the administrators deem to be unnecessarily derogatory or offensive, libellous or unhelpful, and we have an active spam filter that may reject your comment if it contains too many links or otherwise fits the description of spam. If this happens erroneously, email the author of the post and let them know. And note that given the huge amount of spam that all WordPress blogs receive on a daily basis (hundreds) it is not possible to sift through them all and find the ham.

In addition to the above, we ask that you please observe the Gricean maxims:

*Be relevant: That is, stay reasonably on topic.

*Be truthful: This goes without saying; don’t give us any nonsense.

*Be concise: Say as much as you need to without being unnecessarily long-winded.

*Be perspicuous: This last one needs no explanation.

We permit comments and trackbacks on our articles. Anyone may comment. Comments are subject to moderation, filtering, spell checking, editing, and removal without cause or justification.

All comments are reviewed by comment spamming software and by the site administrators and may be removed without cause at any time. All information provided is volunteered by you. Any website address provided in the URL will be linked to from your name, if you wish to include such information. We do not collect and save information provided when commenting such as email address and will not use this information except where indicated. This site and its representatives will not be held responsible for errors in any comment submissions.

Again, we repeat: We reserve all rights of refusal and deletion of any and all comments and trackbacks.
