WLP6: Call for papers

Call for Abstracts


17-19 July 2023

Sorong, Papua Barat Daya, Indonesia


Papers are invited dealing with the “Papuan” (ie. non-Austronesian) languages spoken in eastern Indonesia, the greater New Guinea region, and the Solomon Islands. Equally welcome are papers concerned with the Austronesian languages spoken in the same areas, including the contact varieties of Malay, as well as Tok Pisin and Solomon Islands Pidgin. Papers may be in any of the subfields of linguistics, and may represent variegated approaches and diverse theoretical persuasions. Papers are to be delivered in English.


Persons wishing to present a paper at the workshop are invited to submit a one-page abstract in electronic form (preferably pdf, but MsWord also acceptable) to David Gil at the following address:

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 1 March 2023
