Meeting Description: 

The Symposium 'Advances in Native South American Historical Linguistics,' which will take place as part of the 52nd International Congress of Americanists (http://www.52ica.com/), will gather experts in the historical study of native South American languages, in order to present new findings, assess the present situation, and outline perspectives of future developments in this field of linguistics.

Fifteen papers will be presented, representing a geographic area spanning from the Amazon to Tierra del Fuego and dealing with topics such as areal linguistics, reconstruction of proto-languages, long-range genetic relationships, dialectology, and the diachronic explanation of synchronic irregularities.
