Meeting Description:

Formal Approaches to Creole Studies II

Centre for General Linguistics, Berlin
November 8/9, 2010

Invited speakers:
John Lumsden (UQAM)
Norval Smith (UvA)

This workshop is a follow-up of the successful FACS-Workshop, held at
CASTL, University of Tromsoe, November 14-15 2008. The goal of the
workshop is to bring together scholars who share an interest in the formal
study of creole languages. Highlighting the more formal issues surrounding
creole formation may help us in furthering our understanding how pidgin
and creole languages come into being as well as why their grammatical
properties are the way they are. At the same time, it may foster the
interaction between theoretical linguists and researchers 'in the field'. We
therefore invite abstracts that address theoretical and formal aspects in
Creole Studies, from all the subfields of generative research, syntax,
semantics, phonology, and morphology.

Please note that after this workshop there will be two related conferences at
the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig of interest
to creolists:
- Wednesday Nov 10: Past present and future of Sri Lanka Malay.
- Nov 11-14: 2nd APICS Conference.
