Austronesian from any perspective, including:

- formal theoretical issues;
- typology;
- descriptive linguistics;
- documentary linguistics and language endangerment;
- historical linguistics;
- lexicology;
- applied linguistics;
- discourse.

Papers will be twenty minutes in length plus ten minutes for discussion.
Submissions should be made by email (subject: ALL3 abstract) to aj4soas.ac.uk,
and should include:

- title of the paper;

Contact Person: Martin Haspelmath
Meeting Email: haspelmatheva.mpg.de
Web Site: http://email.eva.mpg.de/~haspelmt/confditrans.html

Linguistic Field(s): Language Description; Syntax; Typology

Call Deadline: 30-Apr-2007

Meeting Description:

This conference will bring together descriptivists and comparativists for an
in-depth discussion of the morphosyntactic, semantic and discourse properties of
ditransitive constructions in the world's languages.

Conference on Ditransitive Constructions in the World's Languages

Leipzig, 23-25 November 2007

organized by Andrej Malchukov and Martin Haspelmath
Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig

Invited speakers:

Balthasar Bickel (U Leipzig)
Bernard Comrie (MPI-EVA Leipzig)
Bernd Heine & Christa König (U Cologne)


We especially encourage contributions providing a systematic description of
ditransitive constructions in individual, little-known languages (perhaps guided
by our Questionnaire; see conference website), based on original fieldwork. But
papers dealing with ditransitive constructions in better known languages, or
from a comparative or general theoretical perspective, are also welcome. We are
hoping to publish an edited volume including a position paper and 20-odd
selected surveys of ditransitive constructions in typologically diverse
languages on the basis of conference presentations.
