Workshop “Unlocking new data: Linguistic typology as a key to agreement variation”
9 Ottobre, 2017 ore 11:00 am - 7:30 pm CEST
The Workshop “Unlocking new data: Linguistic typology as a key to agreement variation” will take place 9 October 2017, in Room RAA-G-01, University of Zurich, as part of the project “The Zurich database of agreement in Italo-Romance varieties”.
The study of agreement is of continuing interest in general linguistics and linguistic typology. Italian dialect varieties display a wealth of interesting phenomena in this area, some of which are unparalleled across Romance, or even within the whole Indo-European language family. However, this wealth of structural diversity has hardly been exploited in typological studies on agreement and thus could not find its way into the international scientific debate, mainly because of the unavailability of the primary data to the international scientific community. We want to fill this gap by developing an online database, consisting of annotated data from seven selected varieties (from north to south): Urbino, Ripatransone, Luras, Agnone, Altamura, Verbicaro, Pantelleria.
The one-day workshop will feature presentations of our international consultants intertwined with talks by project members, focusing on their research.
Everyone is welcome to attend. To facilitate planning please let us know by 25 September 2017 if you are coming by emailing Tania Paciaroni (email@example.com).
