Linguistic Field(s): Language Documentation

Meeting Description:

The theme of the conference is the documentation, description and revitalization
of endangered languages as well as the role of tradition and culture for the
maintenance and promotion of such languages. The Kalasha language and tradition
have been chosen as a case study regarding both its linguistic and cultural
links to Ancient Greece. Moreover, practical suggestions concerning language
documentation processes (e.g. fieldwork projects) and language revitalization
methods (e.g. dictionary/grammar formats, textbooks, etc.) will be most welcome.

The conference will have two aspects, (a) the linguistic and (b) the culture and
tradition aspect of endangered languages, focusing on Kalasha as a case study.
The audience will be academics from both the Linguistics and the Anthropology
and Culture Departments.
