The Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures and the Department of Linguistics at UHM are pleased to announce the Workshop on Experimental Approaches to East Asian Linguistics, to be held at UHM, in Honolulu, Hawaii, May 18-20, 2016. The purpose of the workshop is to provide graduate students working with East Asian languages in any area of linguistics an opportunity to learn about experimental tools for linguistic investigations that are currently available and showcase their own research projects. The workshop will feature five invited speakers:

 

Prof. Theres Grüter (UHM)

Prof. Chigusa Kurumada (University of Rochester)

Prof. Amy Schafer (UHM)

Prof. Jon Sprouse (University of Connecticut)

Prof. Peng Zhou (Macquire University)

 

The first day (May 18, 2016) will consist of tutorials by three of the invited speakers (Profs. Kurumada, Sprouse and Zhou). The rest of the workshop will consist of oral and poster presentations by the invited speakers and graduate students.

 

Abstracts are invited for 20-minute talks (plus 10-minute discussion) and for poster presentations on topics dealing with any aspect of East Asian Linguistics, including phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, first language acquisition, second language acquisition and pedagogy. Priority will be given to abstracts of completed studies that involve an experimental component, yet abstracts of studies without an experimental component and studies that are in progress are also welcome.

 

Abstract should be anonymous, a maximum of one page in length with examples, figures and references on the second page, in at least 11-point font, with margins of at least 2.5 cm/1 inch. The following information should be indicated below the title:

 

  • Language: Chinese, Japanese, Korean or any other languages in East Asia
  • Area: phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, first language acquisition, second language acquisition, pedagogy etc.
  • Status: completed or in-progress
  • Preferred presentation format: oral or poster presentation or either.
