We invite proposals for talks or poster presentations at the 11th HDLS Conference (see guidelines below). General presentations will be 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes for questions. We welcome research that takes into account functional, usage-based approaches to language including but not limited to:

- Cognitive linguistics
- Discourse analysis
- Linguistic typology
- Gesture and signed languages
- Indigenous language endangerment, revitalization, and description
- Sociolinguistics and bilingualism
- Language change & variation

Finally, we also invite speakers to propose themed panels, which will consist of three presenters. Each presenter will be responsible for a 20-minute presentation, for a combined total of 60-minutes per panel, followed by 30 minutes for discussion and questions addressed to the panel. Speakers who propose a panel topic are responsible for arranging who will participate in the proposed panel. Only one abstract should be submitted per topic. The abstract should include the proposed panel topic (300-word abstract), and how each speaker will contribute to the proposed theme (500-word abstract each).

Abstract Guidelines:

General: We will only accept one abstract as a single author and a second as a co-author of a joint presentation.

Length: Maximum 500 words, not including references. A second page may include examples, charts/diagrams, and references. Times New Roman, 12-point font is preferred.

Format: Include the paper title and the text of the abstract. The abstract should not include the author’s name or affiliation. All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously.
