Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Historical Linguistics; Morphology

Meeting Description:

Variation is a property of living languages and a fundamental notion in linguistics. Research on variation is centered on discovering the varying forms and structures of linguistic systems, and aims to deliver hypotheses on the factors that determine and constrain the observable phenomena. To this end, the aim of the workshop is to investigate morphological variation affecting units and morphological processes, which may be triggered by contact with another language, and/or language-internal properties. Illustration will be provided with examples drawn from various linguistic systems and also from dialects of the same language.

The Workshop is organized within the framework of the MORILAN Project (Morphology in language-contact situations: Greek dialects in contact with Turkish and Italian).

Dates: June 19-20

Location: University of Patras, Conference Centre

Main Organizer: Angela Ralli

Organizing Committee: Marios Andreou, George Chairetakis, Katerina Fragopoulou, Marianna Gkiouleka, Nikos Koutsoukos, Vasiliki Makri, Michalis Marinis, Dimitra Melissaropoulou, Christos Papanagiotou.
