Workshop on Information Structure in Endangered Languages 
Short Title: ISEL 

Date: 08-May-2015 - 08-May-2015 
Location: London, United Kingdom

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Pragmatics; Text/Corpus Linguistics 

Meeting Description: 

Research on information structure in endangered languages presents some unique challenges, as the necessary data (text collections, large-scale corpora of spoken language) typically do not exist, so researchers are compelled to develop and work with much smaller datasets than are available for large well-studied languages. Despite these limitations, research on these languages has led to significant theoretical and methodological advances in the field of IS.

This workshop will provide a venue for scholars working on IS in endangered languages to present their research and collaborate on the development of new methodologies for field-based research.

The plenary speaker will be Dejan Matic (MPI Psycholinguistics), whose work focuses on IS in the endangered languages of Siberia, as well as theoretical aspects of IS.
