Meeting Description:

At the launch of the ESF funded research programme European Dialect Syntax (Edisyn), the Meertens Institute is happy to announce a workshop on syntactic doubling phenomena in European dialects. The Edisyn research programme and the workshop aim at achieving two goals. One is to establish a European network of (dialect) syntacticians that use similar standards with respect to methodology of data collection, data storage and annotation, data retrieval and cartography. The second goal is to use this network to compile an extensive list of so-called doubling phenomena from European languages/dialects and to study them as a coherent object. Cross-linguistic comparison of doubling phenomena will enable us to test or formulate new hypotheses about natural language and language variation.
