Meeting Description:

The purpose of the Typology Days in Tallinn is the following:

-To advance the scientific study of the Uralic languages (official languages as well as variants) and define their structures within the context of cross-linguistic diversity;
-To further mutual awareness, dialogue, and co-operation between the international community of linguists specialized in the particular Uralic languages and those interested in the Uralic data across theoretical frameworks and subdisciplines;
-To provide a forum for the Uralic languages and for working towards a database structure that is useful for linguists across linguistic frameworks, in the spirit of linguistic typology; and by doing so, to identify the areas of critically missing research in the Uralic linguistics.
-It is a twin event with Finiteness and Non-Finiteness, taking place on November 25, 2009 at the Institute of the Estonian Language, Tallinn.

Call for Papers:

Hereby we are inviting contributions to the talk, exhibition and poster sessions of the conference. We expect contributions on lexical typology; to mention some topics: verb classes, lexicalized aspect, case marking of arguments, temperature expressions, and any areas where there are lexical restrictions on grammatical structures.

We are open to all linguistic areas of the Uralic languages as long as they deal with the structure of these languages

We are planning to feature a minisession on the possessive constructions in the Uralic languages.

-The deadline for sending an abstract is September 25, 2009. The languages are English or Russian. Submissions should describe original work, completed or in progress, be anonymous (no authors, affiliations or addresses, and no explicit self-reference), be no longer than two (2) pages of A4 including examples and references, and be in PDF format. A separate file should contain the title, the author's name, and affiliation.
