Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the Workshop on the Structure of Uralic Languages (WSUL), to be held at the University of Pécs, Hungary, on 27 August 2021. The event provides a forum to discuss new results in the analysis of syntactic, phonological, or semantic phenomena in Uralic languages.

Invited speaker: Svetlana Toldova (National Research University Higher School of Economics, Moscow)

WSUL will be preceeded by the 15th International Conference on the Structure of Hungarian (ICSH15), held on 25 - 26 August, hosted at the same venue.

Both WSUL and ICSH are planned to be organized in the traditional form. In case developments in the COVID pandemic during the spring of 2021 still do not warrant an offline event at the end of the summer, the events will be held online. The relevant decision will be made and announced in the first half of June 2021.

Call for Papers:

We invite abstracts for 30-minute presentations (excluding Q&A) that present new results in the syntax, phonology and semantics/pragmatics of one or several Uralic languages (whether analyzed on their own, or in comparison to one or more languages outside the Uralic family). We welcome abstracts conceived in any linguistic framework, but work adopting a formal approach will be given preference.

Abstracts, set in a 12-point font with standard margins on all sides, must not exceed two pages including data and references, and must not contain any information identifying the author(s). Submissions are limited to one individual and one joint abstract per author, or two joint abstracts per author. The link for abstract submission is:

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 25 April 2021
