Shared Grammaticalization in the Transeurasian Languages

Date: 21-Sep-2011 - 23-Sep-2011
Location: Leuven, Belgium
Contact: Martine Robbeets
Contact Email: martine_robbeetshotmail.com
Meeting URL: http://www.arts.kuleuven.be/gramm/

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Historical Linguistics; Morphology;
Typology

Meeting Description:

Shared grammaticalization refers to the state whereby two or more
languages have the input and the output of a grammaticalization process in
common. The shared grammaticalization may have arisen independently in
each of them by universal principles of grammatical change, it may have
been induced by language contact, or it may have been inherited, either
from the ancestral language, when the languages were one and the same
or through 'parallel drift', after the languages were disconnected. The
approaches taken by the speakers will be either theoretical, reflecting upon
shared grammaticalization in a cross-linguistic sample of languages, or
experimental, investigating shared grammaticalization between two or more
Transeurasian languages or between a Transeurasian language and
unrelated languages.We use Transeurasian in reference to a large group of
geographically adjacent languages, traditionally known as "Altaic". They
share a significant number of linguistic properties and include at most five
different linguistic families: Japonic, Koreanic, Tungusic, Mongolic and
Turkic. The goal of the workshop is to shed light on instances of shared
grammaticalization and the factors triggering them, with a special focus on
the Transeurasian languages.
