IRIS is offering free registration for PARLAY delegates who contribute data collection materials (NOT data itself) to IRIS during the registration period for PARLAY or up to 6 months afterwards (i.e. no later than March 12th 2015). Materials MUST have been used to collect data for a peer-reviewed publication or an approved PhD thesis, for research into second languages (L2 research).

After last year's great success, we are pleased to announce The 2nd Postgraduate and Academic Researchers in Linguistics at York (PARLAY) Conference. This one-day conference is designed to give postgraduates with an interest in linguistics from all research areas an opportunity to present and discuss their research in a friendly and intellectually stimulating setting at the University of York. Undergraduate students are also welcome to participate in this event. This year, PARLAY is being run as an interdisciplinary event by a committee comprised of researchers from the Departments of Linguistics, Education and Psychology.

The conference will be held on Friday 12th September 2014 in the Berrick Saul Building, which acts as a vibrant hub of research for postgraduates in the arts and humanities. A locally-sourced lunch will be provided, along with refreshments throughout the day. A conference dinner, to which all delegates are invited, will be held in York in the evening.

We invite postgraduate students and early career researchers to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations on any language across a range of topics in language and linguistics. This may include, but is not restricted to:

Applied Linguistics * Conversation Analysis * Corpus Linguistics * Discourse Analysis * Forensic Linguistics * Historical Linguistics * Language Acquisition * Morphology * Phonetics * Phonology * Pragmatics * Psycholinguistics * Semantics * Sociolinguistics * Syntax

We are delighted to welcome Professor Peter Sells (University of York) and Dr. John Williams (University of Cambridge) as plenary speakers for this event.
