Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the second installment of the conference Descriptive Grammars and Typology: The challenges of writing grammars of underdescribed and endangered languages, which will take place on December 1-3, 2021 in Paris (FIAP Paris). We are counting on an on-site event complying to all sanitary restrictions that may apply (if needed, the hosting conditions will be adapted). The conference will consist of one unique general session. Talks will be 30-minute long plus 10 minutes for discussion.

The global endangerement of little-known languages has raised awareness of the urgent need to document and describe them and brought about new advances in the art of grammaticography (see e.g. Ameka, Dench & Evans 2006). The conference series 'Descriptive Grammars and Typology’, whose first installment took place in March 2019 in Helsinki (https://www.helsinki.fi/en/conferences/descriptive-grammars-and-typology), aims to contribute to the development of grammaticography by bringing together authors and users of grammars of underdescribed and/or endangered languages who share an interest in drawing on concepts of linguistic typology in grammatical descriptions.

We are proud to have the following keynote speakers:
- Felix Ameka (Leiden University)
- Nicholas Evans (Australian National University)
- Birgit Hellwig (University of Cologne)
- Aimée Lahaussois (HTL, CNRS)
- Nicolas Quint (LLACAN, CNRS)

The program is now online at https://grammar2021.sciencesconf.org/program.
Keynote speakers are Nicholas Evans, Felix Ameka, Aimée Lahaussois and Nicolas Quint.
