Meeting URL: http://www.spw.uzh.ch/3ttm/program.html 

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

Meeting Description: 

This typology meeting aims at intensifying the contacts and collaboration between students and researchers of linguistic typology on both sides of the Alps and originally grew out of a collaboration between the linguistics departments of the universities of Pavia and Berne.

Contributions cover a large variety of topics in linguistic typology, such as the diachronic nature of universals, borrowing and language contact, morphological changes in auxiliary verb constructions, subordination, modality, gender, number, as well as computational approaches to morphology.

The present meeting is the third of the series. The 1st Transalpine Typology Meeting took place in Berne (Switzerland) in January 22–24, 2009. The 2nd Transalpine Typology Meeting was held in Pavia (Italy) in December 10–11, 2010.
