Meeting Description: The proposed workshop is meant to continue a series of workshops on the Languages of Europe and North and Central Asia (LENCA).

The topic we would like to see addressed:

Typology of action nominals in languages of Europe and northern and central Asia (infinitives, masdars, supines, gerunds, participles, etc.) in the context of other non-finite verb forms in languages of Europe and northern and central Asia:

Infinitive properties and functions may differ throughout languages distinguishing this category. Therefore, it is not always clear when and why this or that form of a language can be defined as an infinitive. Nevertheless, linguists appear to have a certain set of criteria which allow them either to speak of infinitive forms in some languages, e.g. Russian, German, English, French, Turkmen, Altay, Khakas, Shor, Kazakh, Bashkir or Tatar, or to state the absence of such forms in Tuvan, Tofan, Mongolian, Evenki or Khanty.
