Dear colleagues,

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.

oral presentations by other conference participants (20 minutes + 10
minutes for discussion). Language of presentation: English or Russian.
