Meeting Description:

Workshop. Language change: Predication and discourse aspects

November 18-19 2021
Departamento de Letras y Lingüística
Universidad de Sonora

The annual workshop organized at the University of Sonora has focused on topics related to syntactic complexity: clause combining, voice mechanisms, grammaticalization processes, and language change, among others. The discussion of these topics has enabled us to broaden our typological knowledge of linguistic aspects concerned with predication and discourse. To explore these topics, a typological, functional, and diachronic vision has been adopted from which it has been possible to incubate, develop, and consolidate a space of theoretical-methodological concern in relation to the study of minority and typologically diverse languages.
