Abstract submission deadline extended: Monday, January 21, 2013 (formerly January 14)

The central objective of this workshop is to bring together linguists engaged in research on the formal study of the indigenous languages of the Americas for the exchange of ideas across theories, language families, generations of scholars, and, importantly, across the academic and non-academic communities that are involved in language maintenance, revitalization, and restoration.

WSCLA 18 will run all day on Friday and Saturday, April 5-6, and through mid-day on Sunday, April 7. We expect a volume of papers to appear in the UBCWPL series.
