Call for Abstracts

We invite abstracts for presentations (20 min + 10 min for questions) or posters for the fifth edition of Form and Analysis in Mayan Linguistics (FAMLi 5), to be held in Antigua, Guatemala from August 10-11, 2018 (conference venue TBA soon). The aim of FAMLi is 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 to present data and analyses of Mayan languages.

Presentations and posters should present an analysis in any subfield of Mayan linguistics: phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, historical linguistics, language acquisition, linguistic anthropology, psycholinguistics and experimental studies are all welcome. Presentations and posters can be in either Spanish or English. We also encourage the participation of native speaker scholars and students of any of the Mayan languages.


Abstracts should be a maximum of 500 words (English or Spanish) on one page with one inch margins, in Times New Roman, 12 pt., single spaced including references and data. Abstracts should be submitted as a PDF file to EasyChair ( by 13-May-2018.
