Meeting Description:

Greek is one of the few languages in the world with an uninterrupted literary tradition spanning more than three thousand years. Nearly all periods of Greek are well-documented by large amounts of texts. This makes Greek an especially interesting corpus for the study of language change. However, post-classical Greek has been less in the focus of research. After two similar conferences in Mainz and Riga, PGCC aims to bring together specialists of Greek working on the history of Greek after the 5th/4th c. BC, addressing various research questions ranging from methodological problems (e.g. periodization), questions of language standardization and register, text transmission and the analysis of individual linguistic features appearing or disappearing in the post-classical language to the situation of post-classical Greek in Digital Humanities.
