Linguistic Approaches to Endangered Languages: Theory and Description
The Linguistics Association of Turkey (LAT - Dilbilim Dernegi) and the Department of Linguistics of Bogazici University will be organizing a three-day workshop on Linguistic Approaches to Endangered Languages: Theory and Description, July 28-30, 2015. The workshop will be partially supported by CIPL (Comité International Permanent des Linguistes). The workshop is aimed at bringing together linguists working on linguistic analyses of endangered languages mainly, but not exclusively, of Eurasia. According to the Catalogue of Endangered Languages, 43% of living languages are endangered. These statistics underline the significance of linguistic analyses of endangered languages. While the documentation of these languages is crucial in preserving them for posterity, it is undeniable that rigorous analysis of the data will enhance our understanding of the properties of human language, thus providing us with further insight into the nature of the cognitive functions of the human mind.
