Typology of small-scale multilingualism
This conference will take place April 15-17 2019 in Lyon and is organized by the laboratoire Dynamique du Langage (DDL), the Laboratory of Linguistic Convergence (HSE, Moscow), and Institute of Linguistics (Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow), with funding generously provided by the LabEx ASLAN and the Collegium de Lyon.
Small-scale multilingualism (Lüpke 2016, Singer & Harris 2016) is typical for pre-colonial societies with small socio-political groups which have no overarching hierarchical political structure joining them. The aim of the conference is to attract descriptive studies from lesser-known geographical locations and to develop a set of parameters for comparing different sociolinguistic settings across the world.
Dear colleagues, abstract submission for the conference 'TYPOLOGY OF SMALL-SCALE MULTILINGUALISM' has been extended to December 22, 2018.
