Meeting Description:

The Japanese Society for Language Sciences 22nd Annual International Conference (JSLS2020)

The purposes of the society are to stimulate research in the language sciences based on natural language data, in areas such as language acquisition, psycholinguistics, discourse analysis and sociolinguistics, and to support the development of the language sciences through exchange between researchers.

Dr. William O'Grady (University of Hawai‘i) is the plenary speaker and will address language endangerment, language revitalization, and experimental linguistics.

There will be two other special sessions, both held in English. The symposium will discuss language policy and experimental research on the endangered Truku language. The forum will discuss language development and education in second language acquisition.

JSLS2020 will be held at Okinawa International University, Okinawa, Japan.
