Meeting Description:

The Department of Finno-Ugristics of the University of Szeged is pleased to
announce the New trends in Uralistics: typology, syntax, sociolinguistics
conference, to be held from 3 to 5 September, 2009 at the Department of
Finno-Ugristics in Szeged. The objective of the conference is to bring together
linguists who are engaged in research on the typological, syntactic or
sociolinguistic study of the Uralic languages, to exchange ideas across
approaches, theories, methodologies. The conference is intended to bridge the
gap between theoretical, typological, sociolinguistic approaches in general and
Uralic studies, and help to initiate new research projects or collaborations.

We therefore invite papers both on theoretical and on empirical aspects from a
language-specific or cross-linguistic perspective. Contributions are expected to
be based either on new data, or new approaches to analysis. We especially

Papers are invited on, but not limited to, the following topics:
phonological typology
phonological typology and grammar
morphological typology
synthesis and fusion
syntactic typology
typology of parts of speech
information structure
information-structural categories and types
syntactic hierarchy
clause structure
language endangerment
linguistic human rights
