Meeting Description:

We are very pleased to invite you to take part in the Fourth International
Symposium on Middle and Mixed Arabic, which will be held from Saturday 12
to Tuesday 15 October 2013 at Emory University in Atlanta, GA, USA. After
the successful first symposium in Louvain-la-Neuve (2004), the second
symposium in Amsterdam (2007), and the third symposium in Florence (2010)1,
our university has taken over the task to convene the fourth symposium on
the same topic of Middle/Mixed Arabic.

The objectives of the fourth symposium are the same as those of the three
preceding ones: To study written varieties of Middle Arabic and Mixed
Arabic (MMA) and varieties, particularly oral, of contemporary Mixed
Arabic. The main topic of the conference is The Role of Middle/Mixed Arabic
in the Standardization of Modern Arabic in its Actual Written/Spoken Use.
The conference theme will deal with questions such as, How is MMA used in
contemporary forms of written Arabic? What was the role of MMA in the
'invention' of Modern Standard Arabic (MSA)? How are mixed Arabic forms
used in contemporary Arabic? How is the Arabic continuum used? How is MMA
used in literary classical and modern texts?
