> The fourth conference on Grammar and Context: New Approaches to the
> Uralic Languages will be held in Tartu, on 6th-8th June, 2013. The
> conference follows up the previous symposia with the same name held in
> Budapest in 2004, Helsinki in 2007, and Budapest in 2011.
> The conference aims to bring together linguists working on Estonian,
> Finnish, Hungarian and other Uralic languages who are interested in the
> relations between grammatical and pragmatic aspects of language, between
> extralinguistic situations and language as a set of systems, and how
> these relations operate in actual language use. We invite papers from
> either synchronic or diachronic perspectives. We are especially
> interested in papers investigating morphosyntactic variation and its
> relations with extralinguistic context, pragmatic factors, language
> contact and so on. Papers are also encouraged which are based on text
> linguistics, discourse analysis, conversation analysis, contrastive
> grammar, language contact, second language learning and other approaches. 
> Keynote speakers
> Plenary talks will be given by:
> Casper de Groot (University of Amsterdam)
