Linguistic Field(s): History of Linguistics

Call Deadline: 20-Jun-2019

Meeting Description:

After the two successful conferences in 2015 and 2017, we are pleased to invite scholars interested in the history of linguistic ideas developed alongside with different ideologies in different times once more to Georgia.

200 years ago, in 1819, Rasmus Rask after his well-known work “Investigation of the Origin of the Old Norse or Icelandic Language” (1818), traveled to St. Petersburg and Tbilisi (1819).
During this travel he wrote a paper in German on the Languages and Literatures of Norway, Iceland Sweden and Finland (1819). After that Rasmus Rask travelled in Persia, India and Ceylon. He wrote very important works on the authenticity of the Zend language and on the method of expressing the sounds of the Indian Languages in European characters. These works of Rasmus Rask created the strong basis for the historical-comparative linguistics. Due to this reason our conference is dedicated to Rasmus Rask and 200 years history of comparative and areal linguistics.
