Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics; Sociolinguistics

Meeting Description:

Defining the geographical space of linguistic variation and drawing the areal boundedness of linguistic variants are classical issues in dialectology. The beginnings of geolinguistics may be firmly linked to such interests. Even if the nondiscreteness of linguistic variation is well acknowledged, one of the most specific geolinguistic tasks still is the construction/detection of dialectal areas. Present day dialectology thus continues to count on maps in which the regional distribution of linguistic units and dialect areas appear fairly well delimited one against the other. The development of geolinguistic methods and their outcomes over the last decades have significantly shaped new ways of conceiving limits and areas in the study of dialect variation. Also, theoretical advances in the understanding of linguistic variation and its interplay with extra-linguistic factors opened new avenues for interpreting dialectal limits and areas. The ATLAS and CORDIAL teams of the research group Dialectology and Diachrony at Centre of Linguistics of the University of Lisbon (CLUL) organize this symposium as a forum for presentation and discussion of recent developments in the identification and delimitation of dialect areas.

As part of the symposium, there will be a workshop on dialect syntax:

'How Spatial is Dialect Syntax?'

Invited Speakers:

Hans Goebl (University of Salzburg)
Joan Veny (University of Barcelona)

Invited Speaker for the Workshop 'How Spatial is Dialect Syntax?':

Sjef Barbiers (Meertens Institute, Amsterdam)
