Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics; Writing Systems

Meeting Description:

At this conference, representatives of very different philological disciplines – from antiquity to modern times, from Africa through Europe to East Asia – will gather their expertise about sociolinguistic situations with two (or more) scripts for one language. The aim is to make generalizations about the social factors influencing script choice on the basis of a classification of such situations.
