Meeting URL: http://lsa2013.lsa.umich.edu/2012/09/ws18-patterns-of-alignment-in-the-indo-iranian-languages-towards-a-typology/ 

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Historical Linguistics; Typology 

Language Family(ies): Indo-Iranian 
Meeting Description: 

In their early history, the Iranian and Indic languages developed
split-ergative alignment, independently but in parallel. The languages in both
branches vary widely with respect to both (a) their degree of reversion to
accusative alignment and (b) the trajectories that they have followed in this
reversion. The objectives of this workshop is to establish a typology of paths
from split ergativity to full accusativity and to identify parallels and
contrasts between Indic and Iranian languages.
