Meeting Description:

The Festival of Languages will take place in September/October 2009 in
Bremen/Germany. It is meant to familiarise the general public with the idea of
the linguistic diversity of our world as a positive value of humankind that
needs to be preserved.

The Festival covers a period of altogether 21 days from 17 September (a
Thursday) to 7 October (a Wednesday), 2009 and takes place at various sites in
the entire city-state of Bremen including among others the campus of the
University of Bremen, museums, the local parliament, libraries, the Haus der
Wissenschaft, the Instituto Cervantes, the Institut Français, the Institut für
Niederdeutsche Sprache (INS), several local schools and the public
places in the
centre of town.

The ''Institute of General and Applied Linguistics'' (IAAS) at the
University of
Bremen is organizing among others six different conferences (e.g. the 2nd
International Conference of Maltese Linguistics, Morphologies in Contact, et
cetera), days devoted to particular languages like Basque, Livonian, Chamorro
and many others, exhibitions, talks and a multitude of public events.
