Meeting Description :

The 8th Syntax of the World’s Languages conference (SWL 8) will take place in Paris, September 3-5 2018.

Syntax of the World’s Languages 8 provides a forum for linguists working on the syntax of less widely studied languages or language varieties. Its main purpose is enlarging our knowledge and understanding of syntactic diversity. Contributions are expected to be data-driven, and the discussion of theoretical issues is appreciated to the extent that it helps to elucidate the data and remains understandable to persons that are not specialists in the relevant theory. All major theoretical frameworks are equally welcome, and papers that adopt a diachronic or comparative perspective are also welcome, as well as papers dealing with morphological or semantic issues, in so far as syntactic issues also play a major role.

Call for Papers :

The main purpose of the SWL conference series is to enlarge our knowledge and understanding of syntactic diversity. Contributions are expected to be based on first-hand data of individual languages or to adopt a broadly comparative perspective. The discussion of theoretical issues is appreciated to the extent that it helps elucidate the data and is understandable without prior knowledge of the relevant theory. All theoretical frameworks are equally welcome, and papers that adopt a diachronic or comparative perspective are also welcome, as are papers dealing with morphological or semantic issues, as long as syntactic issues also play a major role.

All abstracts and workshop proposals should be submitted via the conference website, http://swl8.sciencesconf.org. For the submission guidelines, please consult the “Call for papers” page on the conference website (https://swl8.sciencesconf.org/resource/page/id/1).
