Meeting Description:

The Institute for Linguistic Studies, Russian Academy of Sciences (Saint Petersburg, Russia) is pleased to announce the 18th Conference on Typology and Grammar for Young Scholars, which will be held in Saint Petersburg, 25–27 November 2021.

Invited Speakers:
Greville G. Corbett (University of Surrey),“Renewing the Agreement Hierarchy: A Canonical Typology approach”
Maria Polinsky (University of Maryland),“In search of experimental syntax”
Peter Arkadiev (The Institute of Slavic Studies, Russian Academy of Sciences / Russian State University for the Humanities), talk title to be announced

We invite submissions from young researchers (under 35 years old) working in all areas of linguistic typology and grammatical theory, whatever the material and theoretical framework. We especially welcome talks on the problems of linguistic typology, reports based on authors’ original field data, and corpus-based studies.

The conference program includes two types of talks:
- Keynote lectures
- Talks by young scholars

In addition, over a course of several years, a special thematic session was organized within the conference program. In 2013, the theme chosen for the section was grammaticalization, in 2014 it was agreement, and in 2015, negation.

The first Conference on Typology and Grammar for Young Scholars took place in autumn 2004 as an initiative of ILS RAS and Saint Petersburg Linguistic Society. Since then, the tradition has continued annually, and the number of languages presented at the conference has been steadily increasing.

Call for Papers:

Submissions from young researchers (35 years old and younger) working in any area of linguistic typology, corpus linguistics, grammar and phonology are welcome. Each talk selected for presentation will be allotted 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes of discussion. The official languages of the conference are Russian and English. Abstracts can be written in either language. Note that the abstract should not exceed 4000 characters (counting spaces), excluding references and abbreviations, otherwise it will be rejected on formal grounds. In the abstract, please specify the problem, methods and findings of the research. One individual may be involved in a maximum of two abstracts (maximum of one as sole author).

The deadline for abstract submission is 3 September 2021. Anonymous abstracts should be submitted via the conference website.

All inquiries can be addressed to the conference email box: youngconfspbgmail.com.
