Fieldworks Language Explorer (FLEx)

To be held Monday May 25, prior to SEALS

This will be a follow-up to last year’s introductory workshop held at SEALS 24 on Fieldworks Language Explorer (FLEx), a software tool for dictionary development, morphological analysis/parsing and interlinearization, and discourse analysis.  According to interest, the workshop may also include an introduction to other software, such as Phonology Assistant, Speech Analyzer and WeSay, and how they can be used in conjunction with FLEx.  Please contact Ellie Hall for further information: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Fourth International Workshop On The Sociolinguistics Of Language Endangerment (SoLE-4)

To be held Tuesday May 26, prior to SEALS

This workshop will discuss and analyze the major sociolinguistic factors in the process of language endangerment. This will take the form of presentations on particular communities from an insider and outsider perspective, as well as overview presentations on specific types of endangerment factors. We will also attempt to provide some examples of successful language maintenance and revival strategies.
SoLE-1 was held at the 3L Summer School at the School of Oriental and African Studies in 2009. SoLE-2 was held at the Linguistic Society of America Summer Institute in 2011. SoLE-3 was held at Yunnan Minzu University in 2014. All four workshops have been under the sponsorship of the Comité International Permanent des Linguistes.
SoLE-4 is organized by Prof David Bradley and Dr Maya Bradley of La Trobe University, and will be held at Payap University in Chiang Mai, Thailand on 26 May 2015.
Abstracts for papers should be sent to < This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it > by 31 March 2015.

This workshop will take place in the Sirindhorn Learning Resource Center (campus map available here)

Update: The program for SoLE-4 is available here.


Workshop on Issues in Kuki-Chin Linguistics

To be held May 28 during the SEALS conference

This workshop will serve as a follow-up to the Workshop in Kuki-Chin Linguistics held at ICSTLL 46 in 2013. Invited papers on specific topics will be presented by specialists in this branch of Tibeto-Burman. In addition, appropriate submissions to the general SEALS conference may be considered for presentation at the workshop. Submissions from native-speaker linguists are especially encouraged.

Review of Classification and ISO Codes for Languages of Mainland Southeast Asia

A special forum during the SEALS conference

In recent years there has been significant discussion about language classification in Southeast Asia, including discussion about the currency of ISO codes and the information compiled by Ethnologue. The organisers would like to take the opportunity afforded by the holding of SEALS at Chiang Mai, to host a workshop to advance practical programmatic steps to update and improve the compilation of language classification information, the allocation of ISO codes, and related issues. This is an important opportunity for the field and we urge interested scholars and researchers to attend.  Contact Nate Cheeseman for more information: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
