Expressions of interest are invited for a working group on the long-term histories of grammatical traditions, and on the interactions between different grammatical traditions. The activities of the working group will include a workshop; participation will be generously funded for up to ten participants by the project’s sponsors, the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Activities will also include publishing individual contributions and a multi-authored article; publication mentoring will be offered to early-career participants and to any others who would like such support. For more detail please go to https://linguistlist.org/callconf/browse-conf-action.cfm?ConfID=227016. You can also download a pdf form HERE.

The Society invites applications for small amounts of funding (usually up to a maximum of £500) to support any form of activity which brings together language and history and allows them to be enjoyed by a non-academic audience. This money is made available thanks to the generosity of the late Martin Burr who was himself a non-academic with a passion for the study of language and history and the connection between them.
Language and History is the Society's academic journal.
It aims to promote the study of the history of all branches of linguistic thought, theoretical and applied, and including non-European traditions.
Its fields of interest include the history both of the major subject areas of linguistics and also more specialised topics, such as writing systems, literacy, rhetoric, and the application of linguistic ideas within professional and technical fields.
