Meeting Description: 

The Centre for the Greek Language is organizing a conference on Ancient Greek Dialects. The emphasis of the conference is on the linguistic map of Central and Northern Greece in antiquity (from the beginnings up to the Roman period). More specifically, the focus of the conference is on the dialect map of Central and Northern Greece, i.e. Thessaly, Boeotia, Aetolia, Epirus, Macedonia, Thrace, and the islands of Northern Aegean along with the coast of Asia Minor and the Black Sea. The papers deal with all aspects of the linguistic make-up of the area under investigation (various phonological issues, morphological problems, and syntactic phenomena) and with all types of evidence: epigraphic, textual, lexicographical, onomastics and other information that attest to the linguistic map of the area, as well as intra-dialect variations and/or sub-divisions, and relations of Greek to other languages of the wider vicinity, such as the ancient Balkan languages. A number of papers take a compara
 tive view as to the way the various dialects interact with one another, whereas other participants take a sociolinguistic approach to the dialects investigated, the various strata and/or substrata observed, the dialectal and/or language admixture, dialect continuum, etc.

Organizing Committee:

Antonios Rengakos (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki /Academy of Athens)
Emilio Crespo (Universidad Autonoma de Madrid)
Georgios K. Giannakis (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki)
Panagiotis Filos (University of Ioannina)

The conference is co-financed by Greece and the European Union (European Social Fund)
