THIRD OXFORD–KOBE LINGUISTICS SEMINAR

THE LINGUISTICS OF ENDANGERED LANGUAGES

KOBE, JAPAN, 2-5 APRIL 2006

INTRODUCTION:

The Third Oxford–Kobe Linguistics Seminar, on 'The Linguistics of Endangered Languages', is being organized at the St. Catherine's College (University of Oxford) Kobe Institute, in Kobe, Japan, by Peter Austin (SOAS, University of London), Masayoshi Shibatani (Rice University & Kobe University), and John Charles Smith (University of Oxford), between 2 and 5 April 2006.

The goal of the seminar is to elaborate on the point (often made, but less frequently demonstrated) that the loss of endangered languages means the loss of unique and unusual linguistic features that we would otherwise have no knowledge of, and that the extinction of languages inevitably results in a poorer linguistics and a poorer language and cultural heritage for the world as a whole.  The Seminar aims to bring together leading authorities in the field and invites them to summarize their position in 'state of the art' papers, while simultaneously promoting collaboration and scholarly exchange between academic colleagues from Japan and other countries in a relaxed and convivial environment.  We invite everyone with an interest in linguistic typology and endangered languages to join us on this occasion. A special welcome is extended to younger scholars and graduate students.

SEMINAR TIMETABLE:

The Seminar will begin in the late afternoon/early evening on Sunday, 2 April 2006, with Registration and a Welcome Reception.  The three days from Monday, 3 April to Wednesday 5 April, inclusive, will be devoted to papers and discussion.  It is suggested that participants should arrive during the morning or early afternoon of Sunday, 2 April, and leave on Thursday, 6 April.  All papers will be invited plenary lectures and will last 50-55 minutes.  The language of the Seminar will be English.
