Workshop on Applicatives in "Indonesian-Type" Languages
Procida, Naples, Italy, 16 June 2014
One of the proposed characteristics of "Indonesian-Type" languages is
the presence of an applicative marker, most commonly a suffix, whose
functional load corresponds in large part to that of some of the voice
affixes of "Philippine-Type" languages.
We are currently developing a project in which we propose to examine the
forms, functions and diachronic development of applicative constructions
in Indonesian-Type languages, with a focus on patterns of
micro-variation in varieties of Malayic and Javanese.
As part of the above project, we plan to hold a one-day workshop
involving paper presentations and panel discussions on the topic of
applicatives in Indonesian-Type languages.A majority of the paper slots
will be filled by project participants; however, we would also like to
make a few slots available to other scholars who might be interested in
presenting a paper at the workshop.
Papers should be concerned with "Indonesisan-Type" languages, and may
either deal with a single language or adopt a comparative
perspective.Topics may include, but are not limited to ...
. the forms and functions of applicative constructions
. patterns of syncretism involving applicatives and other constructions,
such as causatives, allatives, futures, and so forth
. the diachrony of applicative constructions:etymologies and paths of
Persons wishing to present a paper at the workshop are invited to submit
a one-page abstract, preferably in pdf format (but MsWord also
acceptable) to David Gil <gil AT eve.mpg.de>
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 1 March 2014.
The Workshop on Applicatives in "Indonesian-Type" languages will be held
immediately following the 18th International Symposium on
Malay/Indonesian Linguistics (ISMIL18), also in Procida, on the 13-15
June 2014Since these are separate events, prospective participants are
welcome to submit different papers to each event.
