Meeting Description:

The Committee of Linguistics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in cooperation
with the Faculty of Languages, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Poland, and the
Faculty of Polish and Classical Philology, Adam Mickiewicz University in
Poznan, Poland, will host a three-day workshop on diachronic Slavonic syntax,
with special reference to the functional organisation of utterance as the
minimal communicative unit in diachronic and comparative perspective in Slavic
languages. The workshop is part of the workshop series Diachronic Slavonic
Syntax (DSSL).

The workshop is dedicated to the study of the causes and mechanisms of
syntactic change in Slavonic languages, with a special focus on the shifts in
such areas of utterances as:

1. the functional perspective of the sentence expressed in terms of focus,
theme, rheme, transition etc., 
2. syntactic markers of modality understood as a category covering indications
either of a kind of speech act or of the degree of certainty with which
something is said,
3. all extra-grammatical means of organising an utterance (cf. Daneš 1964:
228),
4. variations of the linear order of the sentence as the means of coding or
constructing the meaning,
5. extra-sentence comments, including conjunctions, connectives, discourse
particles
6. suprasegmental coding of the meaning 
etc.

Functional approaches to the linguistic research, in particular in the field
of syntax, are usually applied and tested to the contemporary linguistic
phenomena. We propose to reflect on the functional aspects of Slavic syntax
both in diachronic and comparative perspectives, taking into account reference
to the influences of Greek and Latin. The aim is to promote recent
developments in the field, be it empirical, theoretical or methodological, as
well as the confrontation between contemporary theoretical approaches and the
analysis of old Slavic texts.

The conference will feature keynote speeches by Svetlana M. Tolstaya (Russian
Academy of Sciences, Moscow) and Björn Wiemer (Johannes Gutenberg-Universität
Mainz).

Conference languages are English or Russian.

We invite submissions for 20-minute talks (plus 10 minutes for discussion).
