The Ohio State University Congress on Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics (OSUCHiLL) will be held concurrently with CASPSLaP. Organized entirely by graduate students, OSUCHiLL aims to bring together a wide variety of scholars working within many distinct disciplines and subdisciplines and on many different aspects of language.


We welcome papers dealing with any theoretical aspect of Hispanic or Lusophone Linguistics, including but not limited to: sociolinguistics, pragmatics, phonetics, phonology, morphology, psycholinguistics, semantics, and syntax. Talks will be allotted 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion and may be given in English, Spanish, or Portuguese. We also welcome papers that discuss creoles or indigenous languages of Hispanic and Lusophone countries.


This year, the organizers of OSUCHiLL are excited to welcome Dr. Timothy Face (University of Minnesota) and Dr. Patricia Amaral (Indiana University) as keynote speakers. We also look forward to a workshop on statistical analysis in R to be given by Dr. Sonia Barnes (Marquette University).


Abstracts will be accepted through January 15, 2016, with notification of acceptance no later than February 15, 2016. Abstracts should not exceed 500 words and must be submitted via EasyAbstracts (EasyAbs).
