      Dear Colleagues,

      Submissions are solicited for the 42nd annual meeting of the North American
      Conference on Afroasiatic Linguistics (NACAL 42). NACAL 42 marks the
      conference�s first European meeting, which will be held at Leiden
      University in the Netherlands, on Friday, February 14th, 2014 through
      Sunday, February 16th, 2014.

      NACAL offers a venue for the presentation and discussion of original
      research on linguistic topics relevant to the languages of the Afroasiatic
      phylum (Chadic, Berber, Cushitic, Omotic, Egyptian, and Semitic). Topics
      related to all aspects of Afroasiatic languages, including phonology,
      morphology, syntax, comparative linguistics, sociolinguistics, and
      epigraphy, will be considered. These topics should only be considered as
      general guidelines and are not intended to be exhaustive.

      The theme for NACAL 42 will be �classification�. In line with this theme,
      submissions dealing with the classification and sub-classification of
      Afroasiatic languages are solicited, though no original submission will be
      rejected on account of its subject, so long as it relates to the languages
      of the Afroasiatic phylum and meets the scholarly standards established by
      previous conferences.

      Abstracts describing the precise topic treated with a length of
      approximately 200-300 words can be sent as an electronic version (pdf and
      MS word document) to afroasiatic@..., or as a paper copy to the
      following address:

      The deadline for submission is October 15, 2014. We encourage online
      registration, for which please visit our website at www.nacal.org. The
