CALL FOR PAPERS

The Linguistic Association of Finland is organizing a symposium on

LINGUISTIC PERSPECTIVES ON ENDANGERED LANGUAGES

to be held at the University of Helsinki, August 29 – September 1, 2001.


The symposium will bring together linguists interested in questions relating to endangered languages. We invite papers addressing general linguistic questions as well as papers taking the viewpoint of one (or more) particular language(s). Themes include documentation of endangered languages, standardization of language corpora, and the possible effects of endangerment on the grammar of a language. Other topics relating to language endangerment are also welcome.
