whether synchronic or diachronic, descriptive or theoretical (all frameworks),
to Romance diatopic varieties spoken in Italy.

Abstracts are invited for 20-minute talks (plus 10 minutes for discussion) on
any aspect of the syntax or morphology of the dialects of Italy. The conference
languages are English and Italian. Authors are asked to send their abstracts via
Easy Abstracts on Linguist List. A submission form can be found on the following
site: http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/CIDSM5.

Abstracts should be no longer than two pages in length (including examples and
references), in 12-point type. Abstracts should arrive no later than 31 March
2010. Speakers will be notified of the results of their abstract review by April
30 2010.
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.
