South Asian Languages: Theory, Typology, and Diachrony

Research on South Asian languages has been seeing a steady growth within linguistics as linguists expand their coverage to more and more languages of the subcontinent and as theoretical questions of increasing variety and sharpness are being posed in the context of the typological diversity, the contact situation, and the historical depth of the South Asian linguistic record. As the field grows, connections and commonalities have emerged between scholars working on the empirical, descriptive aspects of South Asian languages and those working on questions embedded in formal linguistic theory. Research on the diachronic aspects of South Asian languages, somewhat disconnected from linguistic theorizing until recently, is becoming relevant in understanding grammatical structure and the range of variability in the South Asian context. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on both formal and empirical aspects of South Asian languages and provide a forum where both can be fruitfully discussed. The main areas of focus will be morphosyntax and semantics.
