Grammar and Context - New Approaches to the Uralic Languages IV

Conference URL:

The fourth conference on Grammar and Context: New Approaches to the Uralic Languages will be held in Tartu, on 6 – 8 June, 2013. The conference follows up the previous symposia with the same name held in Budapest in 2004, Helsinki in 2007, and Budapest in 2011.

The conference aims to bring together linguists working on Estonian, Finnish, Hungarian and other Uralic languages who are interested in the relations between grammatical and pragmatic aspects of language, between extralinguistic situations and language as a set of systems, and how these relations operate in actual language use. We invite papers from either synchronic or diachronic perspectives. We are especially interested in papers investigating morphosyntactic variation and its relations with extralinguistic context, pragmatic factors, language contact and so on. Papers are also encouraged which are based on text linguistics, discourse analysis, conversation analysis, contrastive grammar, language contact, second language learning and other approaches.

Keynote speakers:

Casper de Groot (University of Amsterdam),
Leelo Keevallik (University of Linköping),
Gerson Klumpp (University of Tartu),
Maria Vilkuna (Helsinki, KOTUS).
