Call for Papers

As linguistics continues to grow and connect with other fields, the study of
language is now aided by a diverse range of investigative tools and methods.
In current research, however, these methods are often viewed as mutually
exclusive, if not eliminative, and the subtleties of going from theory to data
and back are frequently lost.

This workshop aims to develop the common ground where multiple linguistic
methods converge and contribute to the understanding of the language faculty in a
complementary fashion, which is indeed the theme laid out in the founding
documents of modern linguistics (Chomsky 1955/1975, Labov 1969).

We invite contributions that highlight how formal linguistic analysis informs,
and is in turn informed by, empirical methods that involve sociolinguistic,
experimental, computational, corpus-based and other approaches.
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. This money will go to help 
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as 
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These 
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return 
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact 
your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match 
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your 
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the 
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple 
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without 
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company 
operates such a program.
