Meeting Description:

The purpose of the Typology Days in Tallinn is the following:

-To advance the scientific study of the Uralic languages (official languages as well as variants) and define their structures within the context of cross-linguistic diversity;
-To further mutual awareness, dialogue, and co-operation between the international community of linguists specialized in the particular Uralic languages and those interested in the Uralic data across theoretical frameworks and sub disciplines;
-To provide a forum for the Uralic languages and for working towards a database structure that is useful for linguists across linguistic frameworks, in the spirit of linguistic typology; and by doing so, to identify the areas of critically missing research in the Uralic linguistics.
-It is a twin event with Finiteness and Non-Finiteness, taking place on November 25, 2009 at the Institute of the Estonian Language, Tallinn.
