The conference is aimed at MA and PhD students, postdocs and young researchers with interests in language contact related topics, areal linguistics and typology. The purpose of the conference is to offer aspiring linguists the chance to present their work, receive broad-based feedback, and get acquainted with the perspectives and research themes beyond the borders of one's homeland. We also see this gathering as an international meeting place for young linguists who share similar research interests or work on the same languages.
A tentative list of invited plenary speakers:
- Maria Koptjevskaja-Tamm (Stockholm University)
- Axel Holvoet (University of Warsaw, Vilnius University)
- Florian Siegl (University of Tartu)
Please refer to the conference web page at http://arealling.ut.ee for updates, practical information and guidelines on how to reach the conference venue.
Call for Papers:
We invite talks dealing with research topics centered around (but not necessarily limited to) the following themes:
- Contact-induced phonological, morphological, syntactic and lexical change;
- Lexical and grammatical replication, shared grammaticalization;
- Typological investigations and wider perspectives on linguistic areas;
- Circum-Baltic languages in general;
- Language contact and sociolinguistics;
- Language contact and dialectal variation;
- L1 and L2 acquisition related matters in connection with the overall themes;
- Globalization and its effect on minor(ity) languages;
- Synchronic, diachronic and panchronic approaches to language contact and linguistic areas.
The abstract should be formatted as follows:
- Times font, size 12; 1,5 line spacing; minimally 2.5 cm margins;
- Limited to one page (A4) in length, including references and examples;
- Anonymous: the abstract itself should hold no reference to the author;
- In PDF format.
Talks will be 20 minutes, with an additional 10 minutes for discussion time. At most one single-authored and one joint abstract per participant will be considered.
The selection of speakers from the abstract pool will be made on a competitive basis, giving priority to original and generally interesting topics regardless of the level of the student. An effort will be made to reach a balance in terms of different subject languages and theoretical approaches. All of the selected speakers will be notified in February 2012 (and given a chance to revise their abstract before publication in the conference booklet).
Please submit your abstract using the EasyAbs interface at:
