Dear colleagues,

Here is a reminder and some clarifications from our organizing team.
The final decision on the general format (offline vs. online) will be
later, since the situation is not easy to predict, but we still have
time till February. Anyway, zoom will be possible for those who will
be subject to travel restrictions.

----------------------------
Dear colleagues and friends,
We would like to draw your attention to the conference «Indigenous
languages of Russia in contact with Russian», which we are organizing
in Moscow on 12–13 February 2021. The deadline for abstract submission
is 15 November 2020. We warmly welcome abstracts from you or your
students and collaborators. Since the pandemic situation remains
unpredictable, we inform you that for those participants who will not
be able to attend in person due to the closed borders and similar
reasons we will definitely provide a possibility of remote
participation via Zoom.

Call for papers:

The second conference «Indigenous languages of Russia in contact with
Russian» will be held at Russian Language Institute (RAS), Moscow on
12–13 February 2021.

We invite abstract submissions addressing the following topics:
— Borrowing of grammatical and lexical patterns from Russian into
indigenous languages of Russia
— Radical changes in the grammar of indigenous languages in the
situation of language shift to Russian
— Contact-induced features in the Russian speech of native speakers of
indigenous languages
— Russian-based pidgins
— Code-switching and code-mixing
Topics which will not be discussed at the conference: sociological
aspects of language contact without any linguistic issues; practical
issues related to revitalization of minority languages, teaching
Russian as L2 etc.; dialectal and regional features of Russian for
which there is no reasonable evidence for contact-induced origin;
problems of etymology.

The conference aims to bring together researchers working on
indigenous languages of Russia, experts in the Russian language, and
sociolinguists. Papers based on new field data, as well as
corpus-based studies are especially encouraged.
