A broad band of typologically similar indigenous languages stretches from Japan and Korea in the East, across Asia and into Eastern and Northern Europe. These languages belong to several genetically distinct language families, notably Japanese-Ryukyuan, Korean, Mongolic, Palaeo-Siberian, Tungusic, Turkic, Uralic, and Indo-European. In South Asia, the area interfaces with Tibeto-Burman, Indo-Aryan, Dravidian, and Austro-Asiatic languages. During the course of history, this area has been a meeting place of numerous cultural and linguistic strands, and represents a fertile, yet largely untilled, field for typological, comparative and sociolinguistic research.
Beginning in May, 2001, a series of three international symposia was organized to bring together linguistic scholars working in various countries to coordinate typological research in this broad linguistic area. The last of these 'LENCA' (Languages of Europe and Northern and Central Asia) symposia took place in Tomsk, Russia, in June, 2006. While much has been accomplished as a result of these symposia, much is still unknown about the typological characteristics of languages in this large and important region.
Therefore, continuing in the tradition of the LENCA symposia, a workshop dealing with the typology of the languages of Europe and Northern and Central Asia is being organized as part of the 45th Societas Linguistica Europea meetings in Stockholm, August 2012.
Call for Papers:
Preliminary abstracts are invited on any topic dealing with the typology of languages in the LENCA area, with an emphasis on the following topics:
a. Locational and directional relations, and their extension to tense and aspect
b. Modality, including evidentiality, mirativity and speaker involvement
c. Discourse strategies
d. Language documentation and archiving
e. Phonetics and phonology
Abstracts must be received by 10 November 2011, and may be in any language, though English is the common language of the SLE conference. Please send abstracts to the following addresses:
Andrey Filtchenko - Tomsk State Pedagogical University (filtchenkopolicy.hu)
Thomas Payne - University of Oregon (tpayneuoregon.edu)
Pirkko Suihkonen - University of Helsinki (suihkonen.pirkkogmail.com)
Lindsay Whaley - Dartmouth University (lindsay.j.whaleydartmouth.edu)
