Meeting Description:

The aim of the International Contrastive Linguistics Conference 2010 is to
encourage the fine-grained comparative analyses between two (or more) languages
from different theoretical perspectives and with different goals. Although
contrastive linguistics has long been associated primarily with applied
linguistics (in particular foreign language teaching), it is here seen as a
subdiscipline of comparative linguistics with major theoretical implications,
which may contribute to our understanding of cross-linguistic and
language-internal variation.

The final program is now available on the conference website:


The plenary speakers are:

- Ekkehard König (Freie Universität Berlin, University of California):
Contrastive Linguistics and Other Approaches to Language Comparison
- Johan Van der Auwera (Universiteit Antwerpen): Contrastive Linguistics and
- Wayne Harbert (Cornell University): Contrastive linguistics and Historical
Comparative Linguistics
