15. Fachtagung der Indogermanischen Gesellschaft:
Zurück zur Wurzel - back to the root"
Wien, 13.-16. September 2016

Zurück zur Wurzel - Struktur, Funktion und Semantik der Wurzel im Indogermanischen.
Die indogermanische Wurzel ist in formaler wie semantischer Hinsicht die Basis jedes indogermanischen Nominal- und Verbalstammes. Gleichwohl haben sich bislang nur relativ wenige Arbeiten mit ihren Eigenschaften näher befasst. Das Wurzelkonzept ist auch in der Theoretischen Sprachwissenschaft - so in den modernsten Strains der Non-Lexicalist Morphology (= Distributed Morphology) - und innerhalb der Lexikalischen Semantik ein vieldiskutiertes Thema. Als Inhalte für einen Tagungsbeitrag kommen daher theoretische Ansätze betreffend die Verankerung der Wurzel im grammatischen System der Grundsprache respektive in jenen von indogermanischen Einzelsprachen ebenso in Betracht wie etwa Untersuchungen zur indogermanischen Wurzelstruktur und zu ihren Restriktionen, die Erörterung möglicher Wurzelerweiterungen oder spezifische Studien zur Semantik einzelner Wurzeln.

Back to the Root - The Structure, Function, and Semantics of the PIE Root. The basis of every nominal and verbal form in Indo-European, both from a morphological as well as a semantic perspective, is the root. Despite this central role, however, surprising little attention has been devoted to the semantic and functional aspect of the root. In theoretical linguistics, by contrast, the concept of the root is a topic of intense investigation, for instance in the most recent versions of non-lexicalist morhpology (= Distributed Morphology), as well as in lexical semantics. We therefore welcome submissions in any of the following areas, from both theoretical and empirical perspectives: The role of the root in the morphological system(s) of PIE and the daughter languages; the semantics and argument structure of individual roots; the phonological structure of roots, including constraints on root structure, and root extensions.

 


 

Call for papers: The relative frequencies of nouns, pronouns, and verbs in discourse.
An international workshop Leipzig, 12-13 August 2013

The ratio of noun, pronoun, and verb tokens in discourse varies both within and across languages. This variation may be related to a host of factors. For instance, cross-linguistic differences may be due to typological factors such as the syntax and morphology of grammatical relations, or differences in cultural traditions. Variation within languages may be related to, e.g., patterns in content choice, narrative strategies, genre, or stages in language acquisition.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together scholars interested in any aspect of the frequencies of nouns, pronouns, and verbs from disciplines such as corpus linguistics, typology, language acquisition, cognitive linguistics, genre studies, stylistics, and others. We invite abstracts for cross-linguistic papers as well as studies on individual languages, and papers that focus on methodology.

Invited speakers:
Wallace Chafe (UC Santa Barbara)
Stefan Evert (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg)

The workshop will include a special session to discuss among the participants future directions of cross-disciplinary corpus-based research on relative frequencies of parts of speech.

The workshop is organized by the project "The relative frequencies of nouns, pronouns, and verbs cross-linguistically" (http://www.eva.mpg.de/lingua/research/relative-frequencies.php), which is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation's DoBeS Program (http://www.volkswagenstiftung.de/en/funding/completed-initiatives/documentation-of-endangered-languages.html).

The workshop will be held adjacent to the Association for Linguistic Typology's 10th Biennial Conference (ALT 10), also in Leipzig (http://www.eva.mpg.de/lingua/conference/2013_ALT10).

Abstract submission:
Abstracts for 30-minutes talks (plus 10 minutes discussion time) should have a maximum length of 500 words or one single-spaced page and be submitted as anonymized pdf files sent as Email attachments to frank_seifart (at) eva.mpg.de. Please specify in the Email body the authors' name(s), contact information (Email, phone, fax), and the abstract title.

Deadline for abstract submission: January 15, 2013
Notification of acceptance: March 15, 2013
