Meeting Description:

This Workshop will be held as part of the twentieth International Colloquium of the Department of Linguistics: Romanian Language-modernity and continuity in linguistics research (Bucharest, 20-21 November 2020) organized by the Faculty of Letters, University of Bucharest. The workshop will take place in collaboration with the Oxford University ISTROX project.

The broad scope of the workshop allows a two-pronged approach: linguistic research on Istro-Romanian and the methodology of conserving Istro-Romanian. On the linguistic side, we are open not only to traditional research topics (the phonetic system and sound change, morphological variation, the particular structure of the Istro-Romanian lexicon, bilingualism) but also to neglected or underexplored areas (interface phenomena such as phonology/morphology, morphology/syntax, syntactic variation and microvariation, grammaticalization, discourse and pragmatic issues). On the conservation side, we are interested in hearing the results of recent dialectological surveys in Istria and in the feasibility of an integrated and thematically diverse electronic corpus and the role that can be played by complementary methods, such as community-sourcing.
