Meeting Description:

The evidential systems of Tibetan languages, in particular Lhasa dialect, have played an important role in the typological discussion of evidential systems generally. However, this typological literature is often disconnected from the results of detailed documentation of the relevant phenomena in the dialectological literature; that much of this literature is written in German and Japanese has served as one obstacle. This panel/workshop solicits descriptive presentations on Tibetan evidential systems across time and space as well as presentations that reexamine what Tibetan can offer for the typological study of evidential systems. It is intended to publish proceedings as a book on Tibetan evidential systems.

Call for Papers:

Please write Nathan W. Hill (nh36soas.ac.uk) with an expression of interest as soon as possible, and submit an abstract by January 15 2014. Note that the date of the session is currently only tentative, and may occur elsewhere during the SEALS24 programme.
