ISBL1 + ISMIL27 Call for Papers

We invite abstracts for 20 minute talks at the inaugural International Symposium of Bornean Linguistics (ISBL) and the 27th International Symposium on Malay/Indonesian Linguistics (ISMIL27), held jointly in-person at the National University of Singapore, June 5–7, 2024.

Papers presented at ISBL should be concerned with the languages of Borneo, whereas presented at ISMIL are concerned with the Malay/Indonesian language in any of its varieties. Presentations may be on any linguistic subfield, and we encourage a diverse range of theoretical and practical approaches to issues in linguistics.
