About LAL 2024

LAL is an international conference organized by the Faculty of Ethnolinguistics, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań since 2016. With more than 30 years of tradition in teaching and researching languages and cultures of Asia, we bring together researchers working in various subfields of Asian linguistics.

Our goal is to explore new perspectives on linguistic research focused on Asian languages, and foster exchange between diverse theoretical and empirical approaches.
We welcome contributions from a wide range of areas in linguistics, including, but not limited to, the following, as well as session proposals on current topics.

  • Pragmatics
  • Semantics
  • Syntax
  • Phonology/phonetics
  • Applied linguistics
  • Corpus linguistics
  • Descriptive/field linguistics
  • Dialectology and language change
  • Historical linguistics
  • Morphology
  • Natural language processing

The language of the conference is English. We invite anonymous abstracts (one page A4 excluding references) for 30-minute oral presentations (in-person and online) followed by a 10 minute Q&A session, and thematic session proposals outlining contents and potential participants (up to two pages A4).
Each contribution should be submitted electronically as a pdf file through EasyChair.

All submissions will be reviewed by an international scientific panel. Accepted and delivered papers will be published upon review in a special issue of Investigationes Linguisticae.
