Information

The Slavonic Department of the University of Regensburg and Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on the Ancient Languages and the Early Stages of Modern Languages of the Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic in cooperation with The Department for Serbian language and linguistics (University of Novi Sad) invite abstracts for the international workshop ‘Diachronic Syntax in Slavonic languages: Gradual changes in focus’ to be held 5-6 December 2008 in Regensburg. The workshop is intended to discuss questions of gradualness of syntactic change which includes both theoretical and empirical questions. An important focus is on already existing diachronic corpora of Slavonic languages and those which are currently under construction (i.e. the Regensburg Diachronic corpus of Russian and the planned Diachronic Corpus of Serbian).

An important focus is on already existing diachronic corpora of Slavonic languages and those which are currently under construction (i.e. the Regensburg Diachronic corpus of Russian and the planned Diachronic Corpus of Serbian).

Areas of Interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Grammaticalization processes in the history of the Slavonic languages
  • The rise of auxiliaries
  • The development of ‘peripheral subjects’ like zero and so called dative subjects
  • The development of reflexive constructions
  • The architecture of Diachronic corpora
  • Historical corpus linguistics
