Archives and Precedings

The UBC Department of Linguistics website hosts the online archives of the ICSNL for the years 1967-present:

The Kinkade Collection: the Online Archive of Papers for the International Conference on Salish and Neighbouring Languages

Please note:

  • The articles in this archive are working papers, and copyright remains with the authors. Our thanks to them for allowing us to distribute these papers electronically.
  • In many cases, these papers have been later revised and published in peer-reviewed journals or books. Readers are suggested to make sure a more recent version of an article isn’t available before citing the ICSNL version in their work.


The ICSNL precedings have been published by the University of British Columbia Working Papers in Linguistics since 2004. Bound hardcopies are available for purchase from the UBCWPL website.

PDF copies of complete volumes or individual papers are also available at UBCWPL Volumes.
