The main goal 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 academic and non-academic communities involved in language maintenance, revitalization, and restoration.
WSCLA 18 is free and open to the public; all are welcome. If you plan to attend, please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can plan accordingly. The workshop booklet is available here (PDF).
