Abstract: The 7th International Conference on Greek Linguistics (ICGL7) took place at the University of York, in England between 8-10th September 2005. The central aim of the conference was the description and the analysis of the Greek language both synchronically and diachronically from a phonological, morphological, syntactic and semantic perspective. Papers in L1 and teaching Greek as a foreign language were presented.

The invited speakers were Professor Angela Ralli (University of Patras, Greece) and Assistant Professor Ianthi-Maria Tsimpli (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece).

During the conference, three workshops were organised:

3. Language & Identities: Greek across contexts & models of communication: Organised by Vally Lytra & Alexandra Georgakopoulou
