Call for Abstracts

We invite abstracts for 30-minute talks (plus 15 mins discussion) in any area related to the workshop topics. We especially encourage submissions that broaden or challenge existing perspectives on the phenomenon of subjectivity in linguistics or philosophy, for instance, through novel data, cross-linguistic studies, experimental or corpus-based work, or non-traditional frameworks and methodologies.

Abstract Guidelines:

1. Abstracts must be submitted in PDF format with filename PaperTitle.pdf (e.g., Subjectivity_and_Discourse_Function.pdf).

2. The main text should be at most 3 pages (US Letter or A4) in length, including examples, with an optional fourth page for references. 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 merit of the abstract, clarity and readability will also be taken into account in reviewing.
