The Olomouc Linguistics Colloquium is to be a general linguistics conference held at least biannually at Palacký University Olomouc. It will cover synchronic or diachronic aspects of grammar, phonology, or semantics. Papers can treat language description, language acquisition, performance, translation, or language deficits.
The 2013 Olomouc Linguistics Colloquium (Olinco 2013) will be held on
6 – 8 June 2013 (Thurs. - Sat.) in Olomouc, Czech Republic in the recently restored Art Centre of Palacký University.
The topic of the conference will be Language use and linguistic structure. We look forward to contributions which include and justify proposals for linguisitic structure, and at the same time relate these structures to some aspect of language use, such as information structure, phonetics, meaning, etc.
