on already existing diachronic corpora of Slavonic languages and those which are
currently under construction (i.e. the Regensburg Diachronic corpus of Russian
and the planned Diachronic Corpus of Serbian).

Call for Papers

The Slavonic Department of the University of Regensburg and Centre for
Interdisciplinary Research on the Ancient Languages and the Early Stages of
Modern Languages of the Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic in cooperation
with The Department for Serbian language and linguistics (University of Novi
Sad) invite abstracts for the international workshop 'Diachronic Syntax in
Slavonic languages: Gradual changes in focus' to be held 5-6 December 2008 in
Regensburg, Germany.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Grammaticalization processes in the history of the Slavonic languages
- The rise of auxiliaries
- The development of 'peripheral subjects' like zero and so called dative subjects
- The development of reflexive constructions
- The architecture of Diachronic corpora
- Historical corpus linguistics

Conference languages will be German and English.
