Message 1: Languages of Europe and North and Central Asia

Subject: Languages of Europe and North and Central Asia



Full Title: Languages of Europe and North and Central Asia
Short Title: LENCA-3

Date: 27-Jun-2006 - 30-Jun-2006
Location: Tomsk, Russia

Web Site: http://www.lenca3.siblang.org

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Pragmatics; Syntax

Call Deadline: 15-Dec-2005

Meeting Description:

The 'Grammar and Pragmatics of Complex Sentences in Languages spoken in Europe and North and Central Asia (LENCA-3)' symposium will take place on 27-30 Jun 2006 in Tomsk, Russia.

The theme of the LENCA-3 symposium centers on structural and semantic features of complex sentences: different strategies of subordination and coordination employed by languages, their geographic distribution and historical development, discourse-pragmatic features of their usage as a means of ensuring inter-clausal coherence, i.e. the semantic-pragmatic connectivity of the functional dimension of event integration vis-à-vis the syntactic dependency (grammatical bonds) of clause integration.

It is anticipated that a number of presentations will deal with these various aspects of complex sentences from a Siberian areal perspective. That is, the conference aims to encourage the development of a local typological view of complex sentences in languages native to Western and Central Siberia (such as Khanty, Selkup, Nenets, Evenki, Ket, Siberian Turkic, etc.), as well as possible contact influence from Russian. However, both a general typological and a historical perspective as a means to inform this discourse will be welcomed.

LENCA 3: 2ND CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Pragmatics; Syntax; Semantics, Complex Sentence.

Call Deadline: 15-Dec-2005

Meeting Description:

The organizing committee of the third international symposium on the languages spoken in Europe and North and Central Asia (LENCA) to be held at Tomsk State Pedagogical University, Tomsk, Russia, on June 27-30, 2006, announces the SECOND CALL FOR ABSTRACTS for LENCA-3.

The LENCA-1 symposium on the languages belonging to the LENCA-group was held at the Udmurt State University, Iževsk, Udmurtia, Russia in 2001. The topic of the first symposium was ''Deixis and quantification in languages spoken in Europe and North and Central Asia''. The LENCA-2 symposium took place at the Kazan State University in 2004, with the theme ''Argument structure and grammatical relations''.

The theme of the LENCA-3 symposium centers on structural and semantic features of complex sentences: different strategies of subordination and coordination employed by languages, their geographic distribution and historical development, discourse-pragmatic features of their usage as a means of ensuring inter-clausal coherence, i.e. the semantic-pragmatic connectivity of the functional dimension of event integration vis-à-vis the syntactic dependency (grammatical bonds) of clause integration.

It is anticipated that a number of presentations will deal with these various aspects of complex sentences from a Siberian areal perspective. That is, the conference aims to encourage the development of a local typological view of complex sentences in languages native to Western and Central Siberia (such as Khanty, Selkup, Nenets, Evenki, Ket, Siberian Turkic, etc.), as well as the investigation of possible influences from areal contacts.

The scale, depth, terminology, and methodology of existing descriptions in this area vary considerably, and with this in mind one of the objectives envisioned for the symposium is to facilitate a negotiation of theoretical frameworks, methodologies, terminologies, and data as a prerequisite for further advancing of the topic. To this end, both a general typological and a historical perspective as a means to inform this discourse will be welcomed.
