Minimum Education Level: No Minimum


Description:
Word is one of the most vague and ill-defined concepts in linguistics. It
comprises both a Chinese monosyllable and an Circassian polysynthetic
construction with dozens of morphemes; a phonetic unity in spoken languages
and a combination of signs and gestures in sign languages; a semantic network
of several meanings (not always close to each other) and a set of
morphological and syntactic properties. It is also the most rapidly changing
entity of a language.
The International Summer School on Typology and Lexicon is focused on
different approaches to word with the special emphasis on meaning. Topics of
the School cover a broad range of subjects relevant to the study of lexical
semantics and lexical typology. The School invites international scholars and
students. In addition to the main program ​we organize Young Linguists'
International Conference​ with poster presentations.​
