    PARLAY Conference: Postgraduate and Academic Researchers in Linguistics at York

    Friday 6th September 2013

    The University of York, Berrick Saul Building

    In the University of York’s 50th anniversary year, we are pleased to announce the first Postgraduate and Academic Researchers in Linguistics at York (PARLAY) conference, supported by the Linguistics Association of Great Britain. This one-day conference is designed to give linguistics postgraduates from all research areas an opportunity to present and discuss their research in a friendly and intellectually stimulating setting at the University of York, with an opportunity for presenters to publish in a special edition of York’s own linguistics journal, the York Papers in Linguistics.

    The conference will be held on Friday 6th September 2013 in the Berrick Saul Building, centrally situated overlooking the campus lake, which acts as a vibrant hub of research for postgraduates in the arts and humanities. A locally-sourced lunch will be provided, along with refreshments throughout the day. A conference dinner will be held in York in the evening, to which all delegates are invited.

    We invite postgraduates, doctoral students and early career researchers to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations on any language, across a range of topics in language and linguistics. This may include, but is not restricted to:

    Syntax * Phonetics * Phonology * Sociolinguistics * Semantics * Pragmatics * Language Acquisition * Conversation Analysis * Discourse Analysis * Corpus Linguistics * Psycholinguistics * Applied Linguistics * Forensic Linguistics *   Historical Linguistics * Morphology


    We are delighted to be welcoming Professor Francis Nolan (University of Cambridge) as plenary speaker for this event.
