The 2nd Interdisciplinary Linguistics Conference hosted by the Linguistics Society at the University of Georgia (ICLUGA) is pleased to announce a call for abstracts that emphasize research that bridges gaps between subfields or theories of linguistics.

Meeting Description:
 Linguistics has diversified into an array of subfields, each of which exemplifies an important facet of the science. However, the need for diversity
and cooperation is ever-present. This conference aims to showcase linguistic experiences that have had positive results when incorporating two or more
subfields in order to solve a problem or answer a research question. Whether it is the marriage of formal and functional theory or a joint venture between
separate disciplines, working together provides researchers with a way to handle data and analyze findings in new and innovative ways.
