LAST CALL FOR PAPERS

LANGUAGE CONTACT AND MINORITY LANGUAGES ON THE LITTORALS OF WESTERN
EUROPE 

EUROLINGUSTICS WEST

St Andrews University, June 11-13 2004

The conference is shaping up well. Four sections are planned:
English/Celtic, German/Scandinavian, Romance and Slavonic with the
four Plenary speakers:

Peter Trudgill (Fribourg)
Sture Ureland (Mannheim)
Peter Nelde (Brussels)
Ralph Penny (London)

This conference, organised by the St Andrews Institute for Language
and Linguistic Studies (SAILLS), in collaboration with the
Europ�ischer Linguistischer Arbeitskreis Mannheim (ELAMA), will
explore the effects of language contact (since 1500) in four areas of
western Europe: Scandinavia and the Low Countries, the British Isles,
France and the Iberian Peninsula. While most attention will be devoted
to contact between the traditional languages of Europe, space will be
given to contact with immigrant languages from outside the Continent.

Papers will include, but need not be limited to, topics such as:
- levelling and koin�ization
- lexical borrowing
- language obsolescence and death
- language shift and language planning


***The deadline for abstracts has been extended to 1 April 2004***

There is still room for further papers, so anyone wishing to
participate is urged to submit a proposal as soon as possible.

All abstracts (150-200 words) with names of presenters, position and
affiliation may be sent to the conference administrator,
