Edisyn workshop III

From Dialectsyntax
Jump to: navigation, search

Venice, September 18-21 2008, in collaboration with Cecilia Poletto

The goal of the workshop is to bring together scholars with experience in the field of dialect syntax and scholars that have recently started, or are planning to set up, a data gathering project. As can be judged from the program, the workshop has three distinct topics: a) progress reports from dialect syntax projects that have recently started b) presentations about syntactic variation in Eastern European countries and c) sessions on methodology, tagging and databases.

The workshop will take place at the Auditorium Santa Margherita of the University of Venice. (For directions to the Auditorium from Piazzale Roma or from the train station, click on "Percorso per Piazzale Roma" or "Percoso per Stazione FS" on the top left.)

Those interested in attending the workshop are of course welcome. Please send us an email in advance and no later than 1 September.
