CALL FOR PAPERS: Texas Linguistics Society, 23-24 June 2012, Austin TX (U.S.A.)

13th TLS Conference

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.

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.
