The Department of Linguistics at SOAS is hosting its second biennial  conference on Language Documentation and Linguistic Theory on 13-14 November 2009.

The conference aims to bring together researchers working on linguistic theory and language documentation and description, with a particular focus on innovative work on under-described or endangered languages. The theme of the LDLT2 conference is: Linguistic theory and language documentation: innovations, successes, and challenges. For 2009, we especially welcome submissions addressing this theme in relation to languages of Africa.

The plenary speakers are: Prof. Larry M. Hyman, University of California, Berkeley; and Prof. Tania Kuteva, SOAS/Heinrich Heine Universität, Düsseldorf.
