|Meeting Description:||DiGS17 will be held at the University of Iceland, Reykjavík, 29–31 May 2015. It is hosted by the Institute of Linguistics at the University of Iceland.
DiGS (Diachronic Generative Syntax) is an established international conference dedicated to the investigation of historical syntax and syntactic change from a generative perspective. Papers on syntactic change in real time and syntactic change in heritage languages are especially encouraged this time.
DiGS17 will be preceded by a workshop entitled The Second Workshop on Formal Ways of Analyzing Variation, FWAV2, on 28 May. The FWAV-workshop is a venue for research that relates linguistic variation and formal analysis. FWAV2 aims to follow up on the success of FWAV1, which was held in Reykjavík 2013, and as FWAV2 is co-located with DiGS17, it is hoped that some of the workshop presentations will make use of the various historical treebanks that are familiar to many researchers in diachronic syntax. For further information see the conference website.
Invited speakers at the conference:
Charles Yang (University of Pennsylvania)
David Willis (University of Cambridge)
Ulrike Demske (University of Potsdam)
