KLCC 2021

Korean Linguistics in Crosslinguistic Context (KLCC) 2021 invites abstracts in any subarea of Korean linguistics, with a focus on comparison of Korean with other languages. We are particularly interested in presentations examining issues in Korean syntax, semantics, phonology, phonetics, and historical linguistics from a theoretically informed crosslinguistic perspective.

Paper presentations will be 30 minutes with additional 10 minutes for questions.

KLCC 2021 is funded by the Laboratory Program for Korean Studies through the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Korea and the Korean Studies Promotion Service of the Academy of Korean Studies (AKS-2016-LAB-2250004).

KLCC 2021 will be held June 4-6, 2021 and hosted by the Department of Linguistics at Cornell University. It will be held virtually using the Zoom conferencing platform. To attend the conference, please register here by May 28, 2021. By attending, you agree to abide by the Code of Conduct.
