Meeting Description:

5th International Conference on Modern Greek Dialects & Linguistic Theory
20-22 September 2012
Universiteit Gent / Ghent University (Belgium)
Contact: mgdlt5ugent.be

The Greek Section of the Department of Linguistics at Ghent University is pleased to announce the 5th International Conference on Modern Greek Dialects & Linguistic Theory (MGDLT5), which will be held 20-22 September 2012 at the Royal Academy of Dutch Language & Literature (KANTL), Koningstraat 18, Ghent. MGDLT5 continues the series that began in Patras (Greece), 2000, and had its latest instantiation in Chios (Greece), 2009. As opposed to the Romance languages and their dialects, the Modern Greek dialects are much less well-known among general linguists, yet these dialects exhibit a bewildering variety of phenomena due to the fact that many of them have developed in relative isolation or in contact-situations with other dialects and/or other languages. The aim of MGDLT is to highlight the importance of the Modern Greek dialects for general linguists, whether they are interested in phonetics and phonology, morphology and word-formation, syntax and semantics, pragmatics and discourse analysis, psycho- or sociolinguistics, historical-comparative or contact linguistics. The Modern Greek dialects offer a plethora of interesting or even intriguing data which can be used to test prevailing hypothesis about language structure and language use, or which can be analyzed in different ways, using different methods and theories developed in modern linguistics.

Invited Speakers:

Geoffrey Horrocks (University of Cambridge)
Adam Ledgeway (University of Cambridge)
Peter Trudgill (University of Agder/LaTrobe University)

Call for Papers:

The organizing committee invites linguists, both senior and junior, to submit a one-page abstract dealing with any aspect of Modern Greek dialectology relevant for linguistic theory to mgdlt5ugent.be (Times New Roman, 12 pt.; please use a Unicode-based font for Greek text), by January 31, 2012. Notification of acceptance will be given by the end of February 2012.

Conference Languages:

The conference languages are English and Greek, but because of the international character of the conference the use of English is preferable.

Brian D. Joseph (Ohio State University)
Angela Ralli (University of Patras)

Local Organizing Committee:

Mark Janse (UGent), Chair
