A mid-size workshop intended to foster research on East Asian linguistics both as a consumer of and as a contributor to general linguistic theory, the TEAL Workshop was first launched in 1990 as a local regional event but has since 2001 gone international. In line with a tradition that has been established, this workshop has the following features:

  • Ample time (about one hour) will be allocated for presentation and discussion of papers representing on-going research
  • The program will contain a mixture of faculty and graduate-student papers
  • (Partial) financial assistance will be made available to selected graduate student presenters whose papers are judged to be the best
  • A poster session may be offered if warranted by sufficient qualified papers


For this year's workshop, each paper accepted for oral presentation will be discussed by a commentator following its presentation. Follow the link to the Program for details.

Important Dates:

  • Abstract submission deadline: April 10, 2005
  • Acceptance notification: by May 10, 2005
  • Workshop Date: July 22-23, 2005 (new!)
