Meeting Description:

The aim of this Symposium is to bring together scholars interested in the role
of two major factors which have shaped the grammars of different varieties of
English and English-based creoles all over the world, viz. so-called 'vernacular
universals' and contact-induced change. By 'vernacular universals' we mean
significant phonological and/or morphosyntactic parallels between different
non-standard varieties of English. These will be set against the other major
explanatory factor: contact-induced change, which refers to the possibility of
dialect or language contacts.
