3rd Conference of the Koldo Mitxelena Chair
Vitoria-Gasteiz, October 8-11, 2012
On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Koldo Mitxelena's death, the Faculty of Arts of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) will be holding the 3rd Conference of the Koldo Mitxelena Chair (1st: 1997, 2nd: 2007). During the four days of the conference, some of the key issues of Mitxelena's research will be analysed, namely the history and prehistory of Basque language as well as various aspects of the linguistic theory and philology that have been used to develop them. The participants of the congress will present invited talks (50') and communications (20'), and some time will also be allowed for discussion.
The first day (October 8) will be devoted to the history and prehistory of the Basque language: diachronic syntax, morphology and phonology, vocabulary evolution, ancient Basque language, old standard Basque, chronology, etymology, etc.
Joseba A. Lakarra (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU)
Iñaki Camino (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU)
The second day (October 9) will focus on several philological aspects: spelling, textual criticism and text editing, sources, lexicography and history of linguistic ideas, the linguistic situation of a determined period, periodization, etc.
Blanca Urgell (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU)
Céline Mounole (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU)
On the third day (October 10), Koldo Mitxelena's works will be analysed (FHV, L&PL, DGV, TAV, Hª de la literatura vasca) in view to locating them in the development of the research on this area.
Javier de Hoz (Complutense University of Madrid)
Joaquín Gorrochategui (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU)
Ricardo Gómez (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU)
Other speakers to be announced
The fourth day (October 11) will serve as a complement to the Congress: in the morning, three guest speakers will talk about the main topics discussed during the first days; in the afternoon, there will be a presentation of the History of Basque Language guide book that is in progress.
