Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Biblical Greek Language and Linguistics section invites members who wish to present a paper that utilizes linguistics to study the biblical text to submit a proposal through the online system by the call deadline, March 1, 2012. Proposals should consist of a 1-2 page description of the paper. In addition, proposers (full and student members) who have not presented at the Annual Meeting must submit the full paper which will be read to the program to the program unit chairs before March 1. Please note that unless otherwise indicated, papers must be of such a length as can be presented within 25 minutes. Our theme session will explore the implications of the rejection of deponency on the voice system, therefore any papers that further contribute to this discussion are of interest.
