International Symposium on Contrastive Linguistics & Diachrony

Meeting URL: http://www.contragram-network.ugent.be/colidi 

Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics; Typology 

Meeting Description: 

The Contragram Research Team and its Research network on Contrastive Linguistics: Functional and Constructional Approaches (funded by FWO-Flanders) are pleased to invite you to the International Symposium on Contrastive Linguistics & Diachrony, to be held at Ghent University on 27-28 February 2014. This symposium is aimed at bringing together researchers from different theoretical backgrounds interested in issues at the intersection of diachronic and contrastive linguistics. The symposium will specifically address the following complementary questions:

(i) To what extent does a better understanding of diachronic evolutions explain differences between languages, whether genetically related or not, and conversely
(ii) To what extent does the incorporation of data from several languages in research on language change provide a better understanding of diachronic evolutions.

Invited Speakers:

Johanna Barðdal (University of Bergen)
Hans Boas (University of Texas at Austin)
Holger Diessel (University of Jena)
Dirk Noël (University of Hong Kong)
