Niger-Congo International Congress

Conference URL:

The Niger-Congo International Congress (NigerCongress) is gathering scholars in comparative linguistic studies of the largest African language macrofamily.
Issues of comparative analysis, reconstruction, language convergence and history will be discussed during four days of sessions in the Center for African Linguistics, Languages and Cultures (LLACAN) in Paris.
The aim of the Congress is to forward the reconstruction of the proto-languages of the Niger-Congo constituent families and, eventually, of the Proto-Niger-Congo language. Data-based communications suggesting proto-language reconstructions (phonological, morphological, lexical, syntactical, semantic…) of various chronological levels or concrete steps toward such reconstructions are especially welcome.
