Call Deadline: 13-Oct-2014
Two joint workshops on the syntax of Uralic languages at the XII International Congress for Finno-Ugric Studies in Oulu, Finland, 17-21 August 2015.
1. Syntactic structure of Uralic languages
Organisers: Anders Holmberg (Newcastle University), Balazs Surányi (HAS-RIL & Pázmány University), Orsolya Tánczos (HAS-RIL & Pázmány University, contact orsolyatan at gmail.com
2. The syntax of Samoyedic and Ob-Ugric languages
Organisers: Larisa Leisiö (Kone Foundation) and Irina Nikolaeva (SOAS, London), contact larisa.leisio at uta.fi
Workshop 1 aims to be a forum to present and discuss current issues concerning the
syntax of Uralic languages based on any kind of theoretical approach. The purpose is to
examine the Uralic languages both from a synchronic and from a diachronic perspective, and
both within one language and cross-linguistically.
Workshop 2 focuses on the syntax of Samoyedic and Ob-Ugric languages with the aim of investigating the variations in their syntactic structure, the contact-induced phenomena in the domain of syntax, as well as the potential common genetic heritage.
2nd Call for Papers:
Extended call deadline: 13 October 2014
We welcome contributions that either introduce the new data on the syntax of Uralic languages, or present a new theoretical analysis of the available data. The topics may include:
- Constituent order
- Argument structure and the syntactic properties of core arguments
- Interaction between word order and information structure
- Differential object marking
- Possessive suffixes as definiteness markers
- Predication in Uralic
- Subject agreement in non-finite constructions
- Valence-changing processes
- Language contact inside and outside of the Uralic language family
- Syntactic change in Uralic Languages
Selected papers may be published in the journal Finno-Ugric Languages and Linguistics.
Abstracts should be submitted by the deadline October 13, 2014 via EasyChair system. See instructions at http://www.oulu.fi/suomenkieli/fuxii/abstraktit. Abstracts should not exceed 500 words excluding possible examples and references. Notification of acceptance will be sent by the end of October, 2014.
