3 March 2021

敬啟者:

 

【論壇】第四屆粵語語言學論壇(FoCaL-4)由香港浸會大學英國語言文學系同香港語言學學會合辦,香港浸會大學文學院同語言研究文學碩士課程贊助。詳情如下:

 

日期:2021年5月29號(禮拜六)

時間:上晝9點鐘至下晝6點鐘

地點:香港浸會大學

 

【目標】我哋想建立一個平台,等學生可以分享最新研究進展、聽取同儕意見。目前唔同院校嘅學生交流唔多,有鑑於此,我哋希望論壇能夠促進跨院校嘅交流同合作。

 

【主題】歡迎研究生、本科生報告同粵語語言學有關(語音學、音系學、形態學、句法學、語義學、語言習得、心理語言學、神經語言學)、而尚未出版嘅研究,尤其是係進行中嘅項目、初步研究、學期論文──總之係當中有啲諗法想大家畀意見同討論嘅都好歡迎。

 

【特邀講者】(按姓氏英文排序)

劉擇明博士(香港教育大學)

莊域飛博士(香港浸會大學)

張偲偲博士(香港理工大學)

 

【報告形式】為咗切合論壇目標,我哋會採用圓桌會議嘅報告形式。每場報告長30分鐘,分兩部分:頭5分鐘簡述要旨(類似「電梯簡報」);後25分鐘加以闡釋,中途聽眾可以隨意發問、評論。報告語言方面,除咗英文、普通話之外,仲好歡迎以粵語報告。

 

【提交摘要】請最遲喺2021320用EasyChair將摘要交嚟(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=focal4)。摘要計埋參考文獻同例子最多一版A4紙;字體大小12,邊界長1寸。千祈唔好將姓名、所屬院校寫落摘要。摘要可以用粵語、英文或者規範中文書寫。

 

【摘要評審結果公佈日期】2021年4月29號

 

【新型肺炎特別安排】受到新型肺炎影響,我哋有以下嘅特別安排:

  1. 報告者可以揀喺現場或網上發表報告;
  2. 我哋會喺論壇前一個月再評估狀況,有需要嘅話我哋會將論壇延期,或者將所有報告改喺網上發表,請大家密切留意。

 

  此致

各位同儕、朋友

Dear colleagues and friends,

 

The Forum

The Fourth Forum on Cantonese Linguistics (FoCaL-4) will be jointly held by Department of English Language and Literature of Hong Kong Baptist University and The Linguistic Society of Hong Kong, sponsored by Faculty of Arts and Master of Arts in Language Studies of Hong Kong Baptist University, with a focus on Cantonese linguistics. Details as follows:

 

Date: 29 May 2021 (Saturday)

Time: 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Venue: Hong Kong Baptist University

 

Aim

We hope to establish a friendly platform for students to present their latest work and receive various peers’ comments. In light of limited intellectual exchange among students across different institutes, we also hope the forum can stimulate inter-institute collaboration.

 

Topic

We welcome presentations on any topic related to Cantonese linguistics (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, acquisition, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics), from postgraduate and undergraduate students. We appreciate any unpublished work, especially on-going research, preliminary research projects and term papers -- ideas and thoughts that are in need of peers’ comments and discussion.

 

Invited speakers (in alphabetic order of surnames)

Dr. LAU Chaak Ming (The Education University of Hong Kong)

Dr. WAKEFIELD John C. (Hong Kong Baptist University)

Dr. ZHANG Caicai (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University)

 

Presentation format

Concerning the presentation format, we would like to adopt a format of round table discussion, with a view to stay close to our proposed goals for this forum. Each presentation would be 5+25 minutes long. In the first five minutes we encourage our presenters to deliver the main idea (like an elevator pitch), followed by a 25-minute presentation with details and explanation, interspersed with questions and comments from the audience. For presentation language, we welcome presentations in Cantonese, in addition to English and Mandarin.

 

Abstract submission

Please submit your abstract to us via EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=focal4) by 20 March 2021. The abstract must be within one A4-page with 12 font size and 1 inch margin, including references and examples. Do not include your name or affiliation in the abstract. It can be written in Cantonese, English or Standard Chinese.

 

Notification date of acceptance

29 April 2021

 

Special arrangements regarding coronavirus

Considering the outbreak of coronavirus, we have the following arrangements:

  1. Presenters may choose to give the presentations on-site or online;
  2. We will re-evaluate the situation a month before the event; if necessary, we may postpone it or change it to an online event, so please stay tuned.

 

Best regards,

The Organizing Committee of The Fourth Forum on Cantonese Linguistics
