3rd International Conference on Kurdish Linguistics

12 04 2016

UvA-logo-englishUniversity of Amsterdam, Netherlands, August 25-26, 2016

Background and scope

After two conferences in Bamberg (2013) and Mardin (2014), the 3rd International Conference on Kurdish Linguistics (ICKL) will take place at the University of Amsterdam on August 25-26, 2016. The event is jointly organized by the Department of General Linguistics at the University of Bamberg and the Amsterdam Center for Language and Communication. The conference serves as a forum of scientific exchange for linguists working on any aspect of Kurdish, including the interactions with its neighboring languages. Accordingly, we welcome contributions which address these issues from the perspectives of various subdomains of linguistics, such as sociolinguistics, descriptive and typologically-oriented analyses of phonology and morphosyntax, grammaticalization and historical development, formal approaches to the grammar, pragmatics, language acquisition, language contact, and corpus linguistics.
