We are pleased to announce the 36th annual conference of the Israel Association for Theoretical Linguistics (IATL), which will take place virtually at Bar Ilan University on July 11-13, 2021. The conference will consist of a general session and a special session on bilingualism. Talks will be 30-minute long plus 10 minutes for discussion.

General Session

We invite submissions of abstracts for presentations of previously unpublished research in all areas of theoretical linguistics, including, but not limited to: phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, language acquisition, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, and computational linguistics.

Special Session - Bilingualism and Theoretical Linguistics

Research on bilingualism has a long history of using formal linguistic theory to address acquisition / maintenance of features and syntactic structures in the two languages of bilingual speakers. This work challenges Chomsky's original notion of an "ideal speaker-listener". Recent theoretically-motivated research has offered opportunities to reconsider fundamental constructs, using bilingualism to address theories which speak to the capacities and architecture of human language.

We invite theoretically informed submissions of abstracts for talks or posters on topics in bilingualism, second and third language acquisition, including but not limited to: child and adult bilingualism, heritage bilingualism, bimodal bilingualism, incomplete acquisition and attrition, codeswitching, language distance. Papers combining experimental methodologies with theoretical argumentation or implications for general linguistic theory are particularly welcome.

Invited Speakers

- Alda Mari (Institut Jean Nicod, CNRS)
- Ianthi Maria Tsimpli (University of Cambridge)
