Workshop on Innovations in Cantonese Linguistics

The Workshop on Innovations in Cantonese Linguistics (WICL) will take place on March 16 and 17, 2012, at The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A. The workshop focuses on new advances in Cantonese linguistics, including innovations in methodologies, tools, and/or computing software. New approaches and research on language variation within the Cantonese (or ‘Yue’) subgroup of the Chinese language family, language contact phenomena, and new subfields and their interfaces are especially welcome.

Keynote Speakers:

Professor Anne Oi-kan Yue (余靄芹), University of Washington
Professor Alan C. L. Yu (余梓麟), University of Chicago

The workshop will also include a session on Cantonese Tones and Breaks Indices (Cantonese ToBI), to introduce the framework and to explore its extension from Hong Kong Cantonese to a Pan-Cantonese version.

This workshop is sponsored by The Ohio State University’s Buckeye Language Network and co-sponsored by the Institute for Chinese Studies, the Graduate Association of Chinese Linguistics, and other units at The Ohio State University.
