Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics

Call Deadline: 10-Jun-2019

Meeting Description:

Jonas Jablonskis (1830–1903) was a famous Lithuanian linguist who standardised the Lithuanian language. His works are very significant for the Lithuanian language in all fields (spelling, phonetics, morphology, syntax and lexicon). He created a number of language rules, including the rules of spelling on the basis of a living language and created new words, which are still in use.

The first conference devoted to Jonas Jablonskis was held in 1993 by the Institute of the Lithuanian Language and the Department of the Lithuanian Language at Vilnius University. Since then, this conference has become a tradition and takes place every autumn.
