Call for papers

Invited speakers:

Regine Eckardt (University of Göttingen)   "Nothing" compares to you
Delia Graff Fara (Princeton University)   Truth relative to what?
Larry Horn (Yale University)   Only XL: The assertoric asymmetry of exponibles
Chung-Chieh Shan (Rutgers)   Characterizing quotation

Submission deadline: December 28, 2008

We invite submissions of abstracts for papers (30-minute presentation plus 10-minute discussion) on any topic in natural language semantics with relevance to linguistic theory. Abstracts must be anonymous. They should be at most 2 pages in length (A4 or US Letter), including examples and references, using a 12pt font with 1-inch (2.5 cm) margins on all four sides. These limitations will be strictly enforced.

SALT 19 will feature a poster session. When you submit your abstract, you will be asked to indicate whether you would like your abstract to be considered for this session. Poster presentations will be published as regular papers in the proceedings.


Authors may be involved in at most two submissions and may be the sole author of at most one abstract. No single author will be allowed to give more than one presentation at the conference.

SALT does not accept papers that have been published or have been accepted for publication at the time of the conference. In addition, preference will be given to presentations that are not duplicated at other major conferences. We therefore request that authors indicate prior or planned presentations of their papers when they submit their abstracts.

Submission details

We will use Pasha for submission of abstracts; only pdf files can be accepted through the system. To submit, please follow this link:
