Meeting Description:

This special session of the Poznan Linguistic Meeting aims to explore the range of evidence that can be applied in language evolution research. Its goals may be summarised as:

- To assess available evidence and to discuss the status of the new sources of evidence applicable to questions of language emergence and evolution
- To assess the role of theoretical syntheses and holistic scenarios of language emergence and evolution
- To identify ways in which linguistic methodologies can be made relevant to answering 'origins' type questions
- To identify limitations of linguistic methodologies when applied in isolation and to discover directions for interdisciplinary collaboration
- To bridge the gap between biological and linguistic conceptions of evidence

Plenary Speaker:

James Hurford (University of Edinburgh)

Call for Papers:

We invite submissions to a special thematic session of the Poznan ́ Linguistics Meeting addressing theory and evidence in language evolution research.
