Meeting Description:

The third International Symposium on the Languages of Java will be held 23-24 June 2011, in Malang, East Java, Indonesia. As in the past, this conference will focus on all linguistic aspects of the languages of Java, broadly understood: Javanese, Sundanese, Madurese, Balinese, and Sasak; and also, possibly, varieties of Malay spoken in those language areas.

Please address all questions to Thomas Conners at oranghutancbn.net.id.

The island of Java is home to several major languages. Javanese-- spoken mainly in Central and East Java-- is the world's 11th largest language in number of native speakers; has one of the oldest and fullest recorded histories of any Austronesian language; and has the most fully articulated phenomenon of speech levels of any language. Sundanese --spoken in West Java-- has over 30 million speakers, and Madurese-- spoken on the neighboring island of Madura and throughout parts of East Java -- has over 13 million speakers. The speech level system is shared by the geographically, historically, and linguistically related languages on the neighboring islands of Bali and Lombok. Each of these languages displays a range of dialects, isolects, continua, and contact varieties and yet they have received relatively little attention from linguists.

With this symposium, we offer an opportunity for scholars working on any aspect of Javanese, Sundanese, and Madurese, Balinese and Sasak to come together and share their findings.

Keynote Speaker:

Professor Dr. Aminudin Aziz

Call for Papers:

Abstracts are invited for papers to be presented on any linguistic topics dealing with the languages of Java and its environs--Javanese, Sundanese, Madurese, Balinese, and Sasak. Papers on other languages will be judged according to their relevance to the symposium topic. Papers are welcome from any subfield of linguistics and using any approach or theoretical background. Studies of non-standard(ized) versions, dialects, and isolects, including contact varieties, are particularly welcome. All papers are to be presented in English.

Persons wishing to present papers at the symposium are invited to submit a one-page [data and references may be on a second page] abstract in electronic form (PDF AND MSWord) to Thomas Conners at the following address: umd.edu>

Deadline for submission of abstracts: March 1, 2011

Please note that the 15th International Symposium on Malay-Indonesian Linguistics (ISMIL 15) will be held immediately following ISLOJ, at the Tugu Hotel, also in Malang, on 25-26 June, 2011. For more information see:
