First Call for Papers

International Conference on 

Linguistics and Classical Languages (LCL)

Conference Dates: February 17-19, 2011
Conference Venue: Roma Tre University
Organization: Università degli Studi Roma Tre, Dipartimento di Linguistica; 
Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Departamento de Filología Clásica
The International Conference on Linguistics and Classical Languages (LCL) 
will be held at Roma Tre University, February 17-19, 2011. The conference 
will be a state of the art review of the contribution of modern Linguistics to 
our knowledge of Latin and Ancient Greek, and likewise, the contribution of 
classical language studies to Linguistics. The comparison of Latin and 
Ancient Greek enjoys a long tradition. Over the last few decades, the 
boundaries of research have broadened, developing from the investigation 
of an individual language family towards a comparison with genetically and 
areally unrelated languages. Accordingly, a re-classification of certain 
Ancient Greek and Latin phenomena has occurred, as well as the 
identification of possible universal and language-specific trends. Apart from 
cross-linguistic studies, important attempts have been made at interpreting 
classical language phenomena within wider theoretical frameworks, 
regarding both functional and formal approaches. LCL aims to be an 
international forum for promoting discussion among linguists interested in 
classical languages as well as among classicists interested in the linguistic 
aspects of the classical world. Papers are expected to be concerned with 
the following topics: 
-The contribution of typological and theoretical research to our knowledge 
of classical languages (e.g., aspect vs. tense; converbs; word order; 
information structure etc.).
-The role of classical languages in typological studies and theoretical 
approaches at different levels of analysis. This area covers such issues as 
the most significant diachronic and synchronic phenomena in Latin and/or 
Ancient Greek (e.g., phonetic and morphonological phenomena; syntactic 
and semantic cases; middle voice; constructions between coordination and 
subordination; richness of particles etc.).
-The potential challenge of classical languages to theoretical approaches 
(e.g., finiteness and the written nature of corpora).
-The relationship between typological, genetic and areal comparison.
