Meeting Description:

Two joint workshops on the syntax of Uralic languages at the XII International Congress for Finno-Ugric Studies in Oulu, Finland, 17-21 August 2015.

1. Syntactic structure of Uralic languages 
Organisers: Anders Holmberg (Newcastle University), Balazs Surányi (HAS-RIL & Pázmány University), Orsolya Tánczos (HAS-RIL & Pázmány University, contact orsolyatan at gmail.com

2. The syntax of Samoyedic and Ob-Ugric languages 
Organisers: Larisa Leisiö (Kone Foundation) and Irina Nikolaeva (SOAS, London), contact larisa.leisio at uta.fi

Workshop 1 aims to be a forum to present and discuss current issues concerning the
syntax of Uralic languages based on any kind of theoretical approach. The purpose is to
examine the Uralic languages both from a synchronic and from a diachronic perspective, and
both within one language and cross-linguistically.

Workshop 2 focuses on the syntax of Samoyedic and Ob-Ugric languages with the aim of investigating the variations in their syntactic structure, the contact-induced phenomena in the domain of syntax, as well as the potential common genetic heritage.

2nd Call for Papers:

Extended call deadline: 13 October 2014

We welcome contributions that either introduce the new data on the syntax of Uralic languages, or present a new theoretical analysis of the available data. The topics may include: 

- Constituent order 
- Argument structure and the syntactic properties of core arguments 
- Interaction between word order and information structure 
- Differential object marking 
- Possessive suffixes as definiteness markers 
- Predication in Uralic 
- Subject agreement in non-finite constructions 
- Valence-changing processes 
- Anaphora 
- Language contact inside and outside of the Uralic language family 
- Syntactic change in Uralic Languages 

Selected papers may be published in the journal Finno-Ugric Languages and Linguistics. 

Abstracts should be submitted by the deadline October 13, 2014 via EasyChair system. See instructions at http://www.oulu.fi/suomenkieli/fuxii/abstraktit.
