Betreff: Sami Linguistics Symposium

Dear Professor Laakso,

I wanted to draw your attention to a symposium on the structure of the Sami
languages we are hosting November 23­25 at the University of Tromsø, and
wondered whether you might send out the following announcement to the
subscribers of URA-LIST.

Thank you in advance

Yours sincerely

Patrik Bye


Starting on 23. November, we'll be hosting a two-day Workshop on the
Structure of the Saami Languages at the University of Tromsø. Recently an
interest in Saami has begun to take root among linguists outside
Scandinavia, and yet there has so far been little contact across traditions
between scholars working on problems relating to Saami grammar. The time
would seem to be ripe to try and draw together researchers in different
traditions with an interest in the structure of the Saami languages. Our
hope is that, by doing this, we will contribute to increasing awareness of
each other's work and accelerating research in the area by facilitating the
crystallization of new collaborative projects. We especially encourage
younger researchers at the Masters and PhD levels to come and present their

We welcome contributions on all aspects of the grammar (phonetics,
phonology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics) of the Saami languages.

If you would like to give a presentation, send an abstract no later than the
1st October 2006.
