Meeting URL: http://www.djl-misu.de

Linguistic Field(s): Syntax; Typology

Meeting Description:

Program: August 3 - 14, 2011
August 1st is suggested as an arrival date.

'There shall be eternal peace and constant friendship between Their
Majesties the King of Prussia and the Tycoon of Japan, as well as between
their heirs and successors,' reads the first paragraph of the treaty
concluded in 1861. This statement has held true - today Germany and
Japan still enjoy close and friendly bilateral relations.

150 years ago, in the autumn of 1860, the Prussian expedition to East Asia
led by Count Eulenburg docked in the Bay of Edo, known today as Tokyo.
Three months later, on 24 January 1861, the two countries signed a treaty
of amity and commerce.

To celebrate this anniversary LMU Munich is planning the Linguistic
Summer Academy in the respective partner country themed '150 Years of
Friendship between Germany and Japan'.

That Federal President Christian Wulff and Crown Prince Naruhito are to be
joint patrons of the series highlights the great importance both countries
attach to their bilateral relations.

There will be three central course contents:
-Linguistic Typology
-Syntax
-Modality
The course on Linguistic Typology will focus on deictic and anaphoric
techniques in Germanic versus East Asian Languages.

The course on syntax will treat the left periphery of the sentence.

The course on modality is devoted to epistemicity, evidentiality, and covert
patterns of modality in German vs. Japanese.
