Meeting Description:

9th International Colloquium �Problems and Methods of History of Language�
The Construction of Languages: Myths, Rules and Emotions

The colloquium aims to face the following questions:

1. Rules: What role has the prescriptive activity had in the construction, the imposition and the acquisition of each language? To what extent do rules have improved the access to a good use of language? To what extent, are rules the basis of linguistic identity? In what sense is linguistics or grammar always prescriptive? Can we say that reflection on a language is what it builds that language?

2. Myths: Through what does mythical story (or stories) have been built each European language? Are linguistic myths universal and steady? Have every culture and every age its myths? What is the meaning and the purpose of each linguistic myth?

3. Emotions: Why are there feelings behind languages? Does a constructed language awaken the same feelings than dialects? How far are similar the emotions regarding different languages? How do feelings affect linguistic attitudes and, therefore, the future of languages? 

Call for Papers:

Colloquium foresees some sessions for the papers of 20 minutes papers on any of the three topics: myth, rules, emotions related to the construction of languages. 

Contributors should submit a publishable 150 words abstract by 15 March to the address ghl at udg.edu with the following information: title, author's name, author's institution or job, country, phone and email.
