The Linguistics Society at the University of Georgia (LSUGA) announces the 4th Annual Linguistics Conference at UGA (LCUGA4). Following in the tradition of previous LCUGAs, we invite presentations which span linguistics subfields as well as incorporate interdisciplinary research from other areas of the sciences and humanities. The central focus of this year's conference is “Crossing Boundaries”. We encourage creative interpretation of this focus, and welcome papers that address any of a myriad of what may be considered linguistic boundaries. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: Sociolinguistic variables that shape geographic or cultural dialect boundaries; boundaries dictated by time (e.g. diachronic analysis); the boundary between the classroom and the community; phonetic/phonological explorations of segment, syllable, word, and intonational unit boundaries; syntactic phase boundaries; the human/computer interface; and second/additional language perception, production, and acquisition.
We are proud to welcome the following plenary speakers to LCUGA4:
Dr. Walt Wolfram, North Carolina State University
Dr. Amanda Dalola, University of South Carolina
Dr. Susan Tamasi, Emory University
