|Meeting Description:||The Cognitive Creolistics group is pleased to announce that the conference 'Time and space in linguistics: interdisciplinary computational approaches' (TaSiL 2014) will take place at Aarhus University, January 15-16, 2014.
The conference will be followed by a one-day workshop on creole languages entitled 'Cross-creole comparisons' on January 17, 2014, to celebrate the publication of the APiCS, the Atlas of Pidgin and Creole Structures (Michaelis et al. 2013, OUP).
In recent years, research has focused on connections between the geographical patterning of languages and language families, as well as on temporal aspects concerning the spread and diversification of languages. In addition, researchers have attempted to link this spread and diversification of languages with non- linguistic aspects, such as population movements (demographics), cultural practices (cultural anthropology), group size and structure (sociology), genes (biology) or features of the landscape (geography).
