About the Workshop

The workshop is dedicated to the study of the causes and mechanisms of syntactic change in Slavonic languages, with special reference to internal vs. contact-induced factors, and their interplay in the process of syntactic change. Its aim is to promote recent developments in the field, both theoretical and methodological, as well as dialogue between different theoretical approaches and linguistic schools.

The workshop welcomes presentations including the following topics:

  • syntactic change under contact conditions in Slavonic: structural convergence, borrowing, shift-induced interference;
  • internally motivated syntactic change in Slavonic;
  • the relation of internally motivated and language contact factors in syntactic change in Slavonic.

We especially welcome empirical contributions based on data from diachronic corpora.

The languages of the conference are English and Russian.

Contingent upon review and acceptance by the academic committee, papers from the conference will be published.
