FAMLi – 2010

Formal Approaches to Mayan Linguistics

April 23–25


The Formal Approaches to Mayan Linguistics (FAMLi) Workshop aims to bring together linguists to present work on contemporary Mayan languages and tackle new and outstanding puzzles in the field. FAMLi encourages participation from researchers working in any linguistic framework, and with any level of formal linguistic background, to present data and analyses of Mayan languages. By attracting a diverse group of participants, FAMLi hopes to facilitate communication between Mayan language researchers, and to create contacts between Mayan scholars and the broader theoretical community.

Thanks to a generous grant from the National Science Foundation, FAMLi has funding to assist with travel and lodging for participants with little or no institutional support. Special priority will be given to native speaker participants.

The FAMLi program and registration information are now online!

FAMLi is made possible by a generous grant from the National Science Foundation, support from the MIT Department of Linguistics and Philosophy and the Mexican Consulate of Boston, as well as the assistance of MIT-Mexico
