Meeting Description:

The Olomouc Linguistics Colloquium (Olinco) is a general linguistics conference held biannually at Palacký University Olomouc, Czech Republic. It covers synchronic or diachronic aspects of grammar, phonology, semantics, and pragmatics. Papers may treat language description, language acquisition, performance, translation, or language deficits.

The general topic of the conference is language use and linguistic structure. The contributions are expected to include justified proposals for linguistic structure, and at the same time relate these structures to some aspect of language use, such as information structure, phonetics, or meaning. The conference also includes several specialized thematic sessions/workshops (see below).
