Meeting Description:

Workshop on Ibero-Romance Historical Linguistics, to be held at the ICHL 2011 (Osaka, Japan)

In the last few years, several projects have sprung up which aim to produce, through collaborative efforts, a historical grammar for one of the Ibero-Romance languages, such as the Sintaxis histórica de la lengua española (Company Company, coord., 2006, 2009) for Old Spanish or the Gramàtica del català antic for Old Catalan (Pérez Saldanya and Martines, coord., forthcoming). Similarly, several historical corpora have been developed through joint work, such as for Spanish the Corpus del español (Mark Davies, coord., 2005) and Biblia Medieval (Andrés Enrique-Arias, coord., 2009); for Portuguese: the Corpus Informatizado do Português Medieval (12th-15th century) and the Corpus do Português (Davies & Ferreira); for Catalan: the Corpus informatitzat del català antic (Pérez Saldanya and Martines, coord.). It is in this spirit of collaboration that we propose an ICHL workshop that aspires to enhance our knowledge of the linguistic structures of the different Old Ibero-Romance languages and dialects.

Call for Papers:

We particularly welcome contributions that

(i) Deal with Ibero-Romance microvariability not only in time but also in space;
(ii) Study the less widely spoken Ibero-Romance varieties, such as Galician;
(iii) Examine lesser studied morphosyntactic phenomena, such as the changes and the continuity) in the use of prepositions and adverbs;
(iv) Analyze contact situations between/with the different Ibero-Romance languages and how such situations accelerate or slow down linguistic changes in progress;
(v) Report on electronic tools, such as historical corpora or dictionaries, that are of use to the Ibero-Romance historical linguistic community.
