Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics; Sociolinguistics

Call Deadline: 16-Jan-2007

Meeting Description:

Pronouns have been described as substitutes for nouns. They are said to
have a purely syntectic function in the sentence. The Hindi pronouns Tu,
tum and aap have a sociolinguistic importance. Similarly English pronouns
Thou, thee thy, ye, you convey some specific message.

India has been referred to as ''sociolinguistic giant''. Sociolinguistic
study of three Hindi pronouns and Middle English pronouns reveals some
interesting facts which is a new field of study.

openness towards high-quality research falling outside current
dominant schools of thought, and on technological transfer within the
Pacific region. The conference represents a unique forum for
scientific and technological exchange, being smaller than ACL and
COLING, and more regional with extensive representation from the
