DIATYPE

Symposium on diachrony, dialectology and typological linguistics
Helsinki, 16-18 October, 2003

Contributions are invited to a symposium on diachrony, dialectology
and language typology to be held in Helsinki in mid-October 2003. The
aim of the symposium is to explore connections between these three
fields of research, looking for ways in which historical linguists and
dialectologists could learn from insights to be gained from
typological studies, and vice versa.

The symposium is organised by the Research Unit for Variation and
Change in English (VARIENG), a National Centre of Excellence funded by
the Academy of Finland and the University of Helsinki. All
contributions to the symposium need not necessarily focus on questions
to do with the English language, although the organizers will
naturally be most interested in topics connected with the evolution
and regional variation of English.

Invited speakers:

- Dieter Kastovsky (University of Vienna)
- Bernd Kortmann (University of Freiburg)
- Anna Siewierska (Lancaster University)

Abstracts:

The deadline for submission of abstracts (in English; max 300 words)
is May 30, 2003. Please submit your abstract by e-mail to
diatype-organizershelsinki.fi. The abstract should be included in the
body of the message. E-mail submissions are recommended. If, however,
you send your abstract by ordinary mail, please provide an e-mail
address as a contact address.

Participants will be notified of acceptance by June 16, 2003. The
accepted abstracts will be published on the web pages of the symposium
at: http://www.eng.helsinki.fi/varieng/main/news.htm

Registration:

The deadline for registration for all participants is September 1,
2003. Register by e-mail to the address
diatype-organizershelsinki.fi. The registration fee is EUR 50.

Accommodation:

The City of Helsinki Tourist Office web pages provide several links to
accommodation in Helsinki. The pages can be accessed from the
symposium web pages or directly from
