Meeting Description:

A two-day workshop on the structure of the Saami (Lapponic) languages at the

Invited speakers:
Pekka Sammallahti, Oulu University

Recently an interest in Saami has begun to take root among linguists outside
Scandinavia, and yet there has so far been little contact across traditions
between scholars working on problems relating to grammar. The time would seem to
be ripe to try and draw together researchers in different traditions with an
interest in the structure of the Saami languages. Our hope is that, by doing
this, we will contribute to increasing awareness of each other's work and
accelerating research in the area by facilitating the crystallization of new
collaborative projects.
