    Individual abstracts and themed sessions are invited for the Annual meeting of the LAGB 2018, to take place at University of Sheffield on 11-14 September. 

    The LAGB welcomes submissions on any topic in the field of linguistics. We particularly welcome papers from areas of linguistics that have not been well represented in previous meetings in order to capture the diversity of linguistics research in the UK and beyond.

    All abstracts will be blind-peer-reviewed by an international committee of reviewers. Both members and non-members are invited to offer papers for the meeting.  The length for papers delivered at the LAGB 2018 meeting is 20 minutes (plus 10 minutes' discussion).

    The deadline for submissions is Sunday 1 April 2018. Notification of acceptance will be made in late May 2018.

    There are a number of bursaries available for student/unwaged presenters. For more details and for details of how to format and submit your abstract, please see:
