Bantu Grammar: Description and Theory, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, 20 – 22 April 2006.
Abstracts are invited for conference presentations, addressing any aspect of the description or analysis of Bantu languages, such as phonology, morphology, syntax/semantics, pragmatics, historical, typological and textual studies. We particularly welcome papers combining theoretical analysis with the description of new or lesser known aspects of Bantu languages.
Time for presentations is 30 minutes including discussion.
Abstracts should be no longer than one page A4, including data and references, with 2.5 cm margins and 12 point font size. Please send two copies of your abstract. One should be anonymous, and one should include your name, affiliation and email at the top of the page, directly below the title.
Abstracts may be submitted either electronically, preferably as PDF, RTF, or MS Word attachment (email address: BantuConference@soas.ac.uk) or as hard copy by post (addressed to Lutz Marten, Department of Africa, SOAS, Thornhaugh Street, Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG, England). In either case, abstracts must reach the organisers by Mon 19 Dec 2005.
