Meeting Description:

The aim of the conference is to bring together dialectologists, Croatian language history researchers, methodologists and computer experts who are researching the interconnectedness of Croatian dialects at all language levels and the contrasting approach to teaching them in schools. The wish is to present the Golden Formula of Croatian language (ča-kaj-što) via a syntactic-semantic web framework that already exists for standard Croatian. The conference will examine:
- the phonology, morphology and vocabulary of each of the three dialects
- history of the Croatian language
- dialectological topics in Croatian language teaching
- corpus lexicography and lexicology
- difficulties in digitizing and maintaining the corpus and vocabulary online
- computer linguistics in linguistic integration
The language of the meeting is Croatian.

The invited speakers of CLFG-2020 are:
Prof. dr. Sanja Zubčić (University of Rijeka, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences)
Prof. dr. Đuro Blažeka (University of Zagreb, Faculty of Teacher Education)
