WIGL 17 – Call for Papers

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Linguistics Student Organization invites submissions for papers to be presented at the 17th annual Workshop in General Linguistics (WIGL 17), to be held Saturday-Sunday, April 4-5, 2020 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The invited speaker for the workshop is Dr. Jacee Cho, Assistant Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her remarks are titled “What is unique about second language acquisition?”

Accordingly, this year’s workshop particularly encourages submissions on second language acquisition, with a special emphasis on syntax and semantics. However, submissions are welcome in any field of descriptive, applied, or theoretical linguistics.

Abstracts should be at most one page, with 1-inch margins and 12-point Times New Roman font. A second page may be included for references and/or data. Abstracts should not include the author’s name or affiliation. Abstracts should be submitted online via EasyAbs: http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/WIGL17.

The deadline for submission is January 31, 2020. You will be notified of the status of your submission by February 15, 2020.
