Meeting URL: http://alignment.as.uky.edu/ 

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.

The emergence of accusative objects in New Indo-Aryan ergative clauses
