Meeting Description: Over the last few years, the syntax of the Uralic languages has become an exciting field of study in linguistic theory. With its wide range of variation as well as family-specific characteristics, the Uralic family offers an abundant source of insights for theories of human language with respect to topics like word order change, contact phenomena, information structure, subordination, possession, evidentiality and more.

The Conference on the Syntax Of Uralic Languages (SOUL) provides a forum to discuss current research on the synchronic or diachronic syntax of Uralic languages and dialects, including both comparative work as well as studies of single languages or dialects.

Invited Speakers:

Prof Anders Holmberg (Newcastle University)
Prof Gerson Klumpp (University of Tartu)

We plan to publish selected papers from the conference in the journal FULL (Finno-Ugric Languages and Linguistics).
Linguistic Subfield: General Linguistics; Historical Linguistics; Syntax
Subject Language Family: Uralic
LL Issue: 28.686
