Invited speakers

Call for papers:
We invite submission of abstracts for 30-minute oral presentations (with an additional 10 minutes for questions) or posters (with a short lightning round presentation prior to the poster session) on any topic in natural language semantics with relevance to linguistic theory.

Submission details
Deadline: Monday, November 15, 2021
Submissions should be made via the SALT32 EasyChair site: We expect to notify authors of their acceptance in early February of 2020.


  • Abstracts (and their metadata) must be completely anonymous.
  • The main text should be at most 2 pages (US Letter or A4) in length, including examples, with an optional third page ONLY for references, large graphs, tables, pictures, figures, and non-English, glossed examples.
  • The abstract should use a 12pt font and 1 inch margins (for US Letter) or 3 cm margins (for A4) on all four sides.
  • The abstract must be submitted as a single PDF file.
  • These limitations will be strictly enforced. In addition to the intellectual interest of the abstract, clarity and readability will also be taken into account in reviewing.
  • The name of the studied language(s) should be included as keywords in the abstract (even if it is English).
SALT32 will feature a poster session. Poster presentations will be published as regular papers in the proceedings.

Authors may be involved in at most two abstracts and may be the sole author of at most one abstract.
SALT does not accept papers that, at the time of the conference, have been published or have been accepted for publication. In addition, preference will be given to presentations that are not duplicated at other major conferences.
If the work or a close variant of it is under submission to or accepted for publication or presentation in any other major venue (such as a national or international conference or a journal/book chapter), we request that the authors create a small section titled “Additional Submission” after the references at the end of the paper. This section should include the other venue(s) for which the work has been submitted, the status of those submissions, and an indication of any major aspects of the SALT abstract not submitted elsewhere. We require that authors update us by email if/when there is a relevant change in the status of other submissions.
SALT has a code of conduct and by submitting an abstract and by attending the conference, you are agreeing to abide by the code.

All papers presented at the conference (including oral presentations, posters, and alternates, and including presentations at the workshop) will be published in a SALT 32 volume following the conclusion of the conference.

The 14th Syntax and Semantics Conference in Paris (CSSP 2021)

PhD course on Dynamic Syntax

PhD course on Dynamic Syntax

The University of Bergen in Norway is hosting an online PhD course on Dynamic Syntax via Zoom from May 21-June 1, 2021Dynamic Syntax is a grammar formalism which aims to capture the real-time parsing and production of language. The course will be of particular interest to those working in syntax, semantics, and the syntax-semantics interface, as well as natural language modelling and computational linguistics, but is open to all!

Call for papers

Eugenio Coseriu (1921-2002) fue uno de los lingüistas más influyentes del siglo XX. Su teoría del lenguaje tuvo un impacto importante en la lingüística románica y general contemporánea. Las propuestas de Coseriu de los años 1950 se pueden considerar pioneras en varias ramas lingüísticas (como en la teoría de cambio lingüístico, la pragmática, la lingüística del texto, la lingüística variacional o la semántica). Sin embargo, aunque varios de sus conceptos llegaron a ser parte del canon de lingüística, otros permanecieron en gran medida desconocidos por lo menos fuera del círculo de sus discípulos.El centenario de su nacimiento en 2021 será la ocasión para la celebración de un congreso internacional organizado por la Universidad de Zúrich en colaboración con el Archivo Eugenio Coseriu de la Universidad de Tubinga. Los objetivos del congreso serán• debatir acerca del origen y la evolución del pensamiento de Coseriu,

• comentar la influencia de los conceptos coserianos en la evolución de la lingüística del siglo XX y su presencia continua,
• hablar de la relación de la lingüística coseriana con otras teorías y escuelas.Aparte de este foco general, cada día de congreso tendrá un foco temático en una de las áreas siguientes:• Variedades lingüísticas
• Cambio lingüístico
• Pragmática y lingüística textual
• Norma y corrección

Los resúmenes para presentaciones orales (30 minutos + 10 minutes de discusión) deben enviarse antes del 31 de diciembre a

Inviting Applications to the Language Science Doctoral Program at UC Irvine

Inviting Applications to the Language Science Doctoral Program at UC Irvine

The Department of Language Science at the University of California, Irvine, invites applications for Fall, 2021, for our language science doctoral program. UCI is located in Orange County, CA, between Los Angeles and San Diego, and just minutes from the ocean. We are a Department of Language Science that merges the cross-disciplinarity of linguistics, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience with a focus on computational and experimental studies of language development, semantics and pragmatics, syntax, speech, and bilingualism. As the first of its kind in the country, our program provides a new approach to the science of language, enabling exciting opportunities for deep collaboration and cutting edge cross-fertilization. Our aim is to prepare students to be at the forefront of change in the field, empowering them to be the future leaders driving innovation. Our faculty bring expertise in innovative technologies for quantitative, neuroscientific, and behavioral approaches to language science.

We anticipate adding a number of new faculty by Fall, 2021 who will add to existing strengths and contribute to the breadth of our graduate program. Language Science graduate training incorporates curricular flexibility, development of technical communication skills, and prioritization of research early in the graduate career. We welcome applications from students who wish to develop cross-disciplinary collaborations across different faculty research programs. New students will join a cohort of 11 graduate students and two post doctoral fellows.

We encourage prospective students to contact faculty for specific information about their labs or Judith Kroll (, graduate director, for more general information about the program.  The deadline for applications is December 1, 2020.

The core language science faculty include:
Richard Futrell ( linguistics, natural language processing, Bayesian modeling, information theory
Gregory Hickok ( neuroanatomy of language, neural plasticity, neuroimaging, cognitive neuroscience
Judith Kroll ( bilingualism, cognition, language processing, cognitive neuroscience
