CALL FOR PAPERS

13th Texas Linguistics Society (TLS) Conference
June 23-24, 2012
University of Texas at Austin

TLS is a graduate-student run conference in linguistics organized by the
Texas Linguistics Society and the Department of Linguistics at the
University of Texas at Austin. This year's TLS is co-located with the North
American Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information and associated
workshops and symposia.

http://uts.cc.utexas.edu/~tls/

TLS 13 will be structured around two para-sessions: (1) the semantics and
pragmatics of questions and question-based models of discourse, and (2)
signed languages and meaning. While we encourage submissions related to
these themes, we are also interested in submissions on topics of general
linguistic interest. Papers on language related topics from disciplines
including anthropology, cognitive science, neuroscience, philosophy of
language, and psychology will also be considered.
