Abstracts are invited from all areas of grammar (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics) and their interfaces. Abstracts on language acquisition, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, sociolinguistics and computational linguistics are also encouraged.
We strongly encourage contributions exploring approaches to language diversity and typological works (including but not limited to sign languages, under-represented languages and comparative studies).
