COMPARATIVE LINGUISTICS WORKSHOP PROPOSAL
We would like to hold a workshop to bring together people interested
in Australian historical linguistics.
We were thinking of holding this workshop over the weekend after
Easter in 1993 (17th-18th April) at one of the Melbourne
University's residences in the country.
We are not thinking of this as a workshop stuffed with formal
presentations, but rather as a time for collaborative work and
relaxed discussion. However, we would like people to come prepared
to report on their work in progress but not necessarily in the form
of a paper.
Topics for discussion that we are interested in include:
*comparative dictionaries of Australian languages
* comparing correspondence sets
* different approaches to sub-grouping
* semantic change
* social conditions for language change in Australia
We plan to have the workshop at Strathfield (about 50k from
Melbourne) Shearers Quartes and Farmhands Cottage (build 1848) Cost
$12 per day for accommodation . B.Y.O. Sleeping bags and food - joint
cooking may be arranged later.
If you are interested in attending, you may return the form below to:
Nick Evans & Ilia Pejros
University of Melbourne
Parkville VIC 3052
I am interested in discussing the following topics:
The languages I am most familiar with are:
