The conference URL:

The 27th International Conference on Yue Dialects is organized at The Ohio State University, in Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A. We at OSU are very excited to host this conference, as it will be the first time that this conference series — first launched in 1987 in Hong Kong by Linguistic Society of Hong Kong and The Chinese University of Hong Kong — is being held overseas, outside China and its two SARs, Hong Kong and Macau.

The theme of the conference is: Visions, Variation, and Vitality in Yue Dialects. We welcome abstracts for submission on all aspects of linguistics of Cantonese and other Yue dialects, and especially those associated with the theme of the conference.

The conference has invited 3 keynote speakers, two in Chinese linguistics and one in Chinese history.

Professor Dana Bourgerie 白杰理教授 (Brigham Young University)
Professor Gina Anne Tam 潭吉娜教授 (Trinity University)
Professor Holman Tse 謝浩明教授  (St. Catherine University)

Instructions for online abstract submission are available from the conference website.

Abstract Submission Deadline:

September 3, 2023 11:59 PM Eastern Time

We look forward to abstract submissions! Thanks! For those in Canada, a belated Happy Canada Day! And for those in the U.S., a Happy July 4th!

The Ohio State University, on behalf of the 27th International Conference on Yue Dialects Organizing Committee
