SSILA

The Society for the Study of the Indigenous Languages of the Americas

SSILA January 2015 meeting, a few notes from president Alice Taff

DUPLICATE PROPOSALS  submitted to both LSA and a Sister Society

So that duplicate proposals are not submitted in future, Alice Taff and Ivy Doak met with the LSA Program Committee on  1/11/15. LSA will add wording to their call for papers precluding the submission of the same abstract to both LSA and a Sister Society. SSILA will do the same.

 

SSILA TRIBUTE TO EMMON BACH

For 2016, the LSA Program Committee has approved development by Pat Shaw of a special joint LSA/SSILA symposium in honor of Emmon Bach’s diverse contributions (ranging across and often integrating complex domains of semantic, syntactic, morphological, and phonological behaviors) that derived from his work with a number of the indigenous languages of North America, particularly Haisla (Wakashan), Coast Tsimshian (Tsimshianic), and Western Abenaki (Algonquian). Thank you Pat!
