5th International Conference on Modern Greek Dialects & Linguistic Theory
20-22 September 2012
Universiteit Gent / Ghent University (Belgium)
Contact: mgdlt5 at ugent.be 

The Greek Section of the Department of Linguistics at Ghent University is pleased to announce the 5th International Conference on Modern Greek Dialects & Linguistic Theory (MGDLT5), which will be held 20-22 September 2012 at the Royal Academy of Dutch Language & Literature (KANTL), Koningstraat 18, Ghent. MGDLT5 continues the series that began in Patras (Greece), 2000, and had its latest instantiation in Chios (Greece), 2009. As opposed to the Romance languages and their dialects, the Modern Greek dialects are much less well-known among general linguists, yet these dialects exhibit a bewildering variety of phenomena due to the fact that many of them have developed in relative isolation or in contact-situations with other dialects and/or other languages. The aim of MGDLT is to highlight the importance of the Modern Greek dialects for general linguists, whether they are interested in phonetics & phonology, morphology & word-formation, syntax & semantics, pragmatics & discourse analysis, psycho- or sociolinguistics, historical-comparative or contact linguistics. The Modern Greek dialects offer a plethora of interesting or even intriguing data which can be used to test prevailing hypothesis about language structure and language use, or which can be analyzed in different ways, using different methods and theories developed in modern linguistics.
