WICL 2 Call for Papers

The 2nd Workshop on Innovations in Cantonese Linguistics (WICL 2) will take place on March 7, 2014, at the University of Chicago, U.S.A. The workshop focuses on new advances in Cantonese Linguistics, including innovations in methodologies, tools, and/or computing software. New approaches and research on language variation within the Cantonese (or “Yue”) subgroup of the Chinese language family, language contact phenomena, and new subfields and their interfaces are especially welcome.

Invited speakers:

  • Marjorie Chan (The Ohio State University)
  • Elaine Francis (Purdue University)
  • Benjamin Munson (University of Minnesota)
  • Patrick Wong (Chinese University of Hong Kong)

WICL2 will meet in conjunction with the 2nd East Asian Psycholinguistics Colloquium (EAPC 2), to be held on March 8 at the University of Chicago. We encourage attendees of WICL2 to attend the EAPC 2 as well.
