The 49th Annual Conference of the Linguistic Society of Papua New Guinea will take place June 17-19, 2015, at the University of Papua New Guinea Waigani Campus.
Language enables all cultural and socio-economic development; paradoxically, it also often impedes development by creating communication issues in modern multilingual/multicultural societies. With the conference theme, "Promoting Language Education for Sustainable Development," echoing the overarching national concern to promote sustainable socio-economic development in Papua New Guinea, LSPNG 2015 aims to stimulate a useful exchange of ideas between intellectuals and policy makers on language education and language-related issues. While abstracts of papers on any subject dealing with topics in Melanesian language and linguistics are invited, preference will be given to those pertaining to language and its role in society.
