Date: September,30 - October, 2, 2014
In keeping with the tradition of the biennials convened in 1990-2012 in Moscow and St. Petersburg, the conference will focus on the remarkable far-reaching parallelism in syntactic and semantic structures of the languages of the Far East, Southeast Asia and West Africa, which can be explained neither by genealogical affinity, nor by aerial factors. Both individual language investigations and typological studies are encouraged. General phonetic and general linguistics themes are especially welcome.
