The Linguistic Institute 2011 will take place July 7-August 2 on the campus of the University of Colorado at Boulder, with sponsorship by the Linguistic Society of America and the university. The Dictionary Society of North America is also a sponsor. Courses are being taught by over 100 outstanding international visiting faculty members. In addition, more than 20 affiliated workshops and conference meetings will be held during Institute 2011.
The theme of the 2011 Linguistic Institute is Language in the World, and the focus is on interdisciplinary, empirically based approaches to language. In keeping with this theme, a large suite of courses target language documentation and description, as well as processes of language endangerment and appropriate responses. The Institute not only continues a vital tradition in the field but also showcases the outstanding research and teaching activities at the University of Colorado at Boulder. The 79 one-credit hour courses include many courses on sociolinguistics, field methods, typology, syntactic/semantic/pragmatic theory, cognitive science and computational linguistics. The Institute is also proud to offer a DSNA-sponsored course taught by Orin Hargraves, "Defining English for Global Consumers: A Course in Practical Lexicography."
Online registration is open through July 5 at the Institute website: https://verbs.colorado.edu/LSA2011/index.html.
