Conference on Languages in Contact

Groningen University
November 25-26, 1999

LAST CALL FOR PAPERS

A conference on languages in contact will be held on November 
25-26, 1999, at the University of Groningen. This conference will 
include sessions devoted to descriptive and theoretical aspects of 
language contact. 

The aim of this conference is to discuss language contact. Issues 
for discussion involve pidgins and creoles, minorities and their 
languages, Diaspora situations, 'Sprachbund' phenomena, 
extralinguistic correlates of variety in contact situations, 
problems of endangered languages and the typology of these 
languages.

We particularly welcome reports on contact phenomena between 
languages in Russia, their survival and the influence of Russian. 
This includes Yiddish and Mennonite dialects of Low-German. 
There will be a special session devoted to this topic: languages in 
contact with Russian.

The conference will be held on the occasion of the degree of 
honorary doctor in St Petersburg of Dr Tjeerd de Graaf.

We welcome contributions for 30-minute presentations (including 
10 minutes of discussion).
