Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics

Meeting Description:

This two-day workshop is organized by the Interdisciplinary Centre European
Languages - Structures - Development - Comparison (ZEUS) at the Freie
Universitaet of Berlin. It aims at bringing together a number of leading
scholars as well as young researchers either within new generative approaches
(minimalism, cartography, among others) or constructional approaches. In
accordance with the main goals of our Interdisciplinary Centre, speakers will be
guided by the question if and why the framework presented is particularly
appropriate for (i) language comparison, and/or (ii) language change. In the
last part of the workshop, a discussion panel is planned in which workshop
participants and invited guests will extend the dialogue to language acquisition
and cognitive science / neuroscience.
