5th workshop on languages of the Volga-Kama Sprachbund (The Institute of Linguistics RAS, NRU HSE) will take place on December 11-12, 2020.
This workshop continuing the series of workshops focusing on Finno-Ugric and Turkic languages of the Volga-Kama region, held in the years 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2019. The existence of strong areal connections between Finno-Ugric and Turkic languages, which are usually brought together under the notion of Volga-Kama Sprachbund, has been known for a long time. We expect that the collaboration of specialists of Volga-Kama languages will help to bring forward subtle differences and similarities, which will be valuable for descriptive and theoretical research in the domain of each particular language.
Both descriptive typological and more theoretically-oriented abstracts are accepted.
Should the epidemiological situation in Russia or worldwide get worse, the workshop will be partially or fully held on-line.
