Deutsches Seminar Edisyn

Workshop European Dialect Syntax VIII (June 2015)

11-13 June 2015, University of Zurich

The eighth Edisyn Workshop aims at bringing together scholars working in the field of dialect syntax and syntactic microvariation. The general topic of the workshop will be

Pathways of Syntactic Diffusion

Therefore contributions addressing diachronic, diatopic or diastratic perspectives on the dynamics of syntactic variation are especially welcome, although no thematic restrictions apply. We continue to welcome project presentations by new members of the Edisyn network, and we would particularly like to encourage PhD students to submit their proposals.

We plan to reserve an afternoon for exchanging practical issues concerning the cartographic representation and geographic modelling of linguistic data as well as corpus building. If you would like to make a contribution or participate in this part of the workshop, let us know in advance via e-mail.

The conference language will be English.
