Meeting Description:

The 11th International Conference of Nordic and General Linguistics, organized under the auspices of the Nordic Association of Linguists, will take place at Freiburg University April 18th-20th, 2012. The ICNGL conference series provides an open forum for linguistic research in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas on Nordic (including Germanic, Finnic, Saamic and Greenlandic) and other languages, between researchers from the Nordic countries and elsewhere. Its main goals are to create and strengthen connections between researchers working on different languages, with different methodological and theoretical approaches. The Freiburg conference will have a special focus on language contact.

The following seven theme session proposals have been accepted:

1) Constructions across grammars
2) Experimental approaches to meaning and understanding across languages
3) The Left Periphery in Scandinavian: a comparative perspective
4) Linguistic prehistory of Northern Europe
5) West Nordic prosody
6) Swearing in the Nordic Countries
7) Information structuring and typology of question and answer pairs: Estonian and French compared with a few other languages.

Theme sessions take place parallel to the general session of the conference. The complete program will be announced in December when conference registration opens.
