Dear all, 

this is a reminder that we are organizing a conference on dialect
syntax, variation and contact-induced changes in grammar next February
in Tartu: 

GRAMMAR OF NON-STANDARD VARIETIES IN THE EAST OF THE CIRCUM-BALTIC AREA 

UNIVERSITY OF TARTU, FEBRURARY 1-3, 2018 

http://estdiasyn.ut.ee/conference/ [1]

In recent decades, the focus of dialectal research of Western European
languages has shifted from lexicography, phonology and morphology to
different domains of grammar, such as syntax. Both questionnaire- and
corpus-based methods have brought about new ways of collecting
dialectological data as well as a new impetus to dialectological
fieldwork. Variationist linguists have become interested in dialectal
grammars and the ways they interact with each other as well as with
standard varieties. 

The aim of this conference is to offer a forum for researchers working
on various domains of GRAMMAR OF NON-STANDARD VARIETIES OF THE
CIRCUM-BALTIC AREA. We envisage submission on topics including but not
limited to the following: 

- the description of a particular grammatical phenomenon in a
non-standard variety from the area; 

- comparative studies on non-standard varieties of genetically different
languages; 

- studies providing evidence for language contact on the basis of
non-standard varieties; 

- contact-induced variation and change; 

- the contribution of the varieties to linguistic theory, typology,
etc.; 

- the description of accommodation and propagation mechanisms of a
borrowed pattern in non-standard varieties. 

Abstract submission deadline: SEPTEMBER 30, 2017
