Workshop “Unlocking new data: Linguistic typology as a key to agreement variation”

Montag, 9. Oktober 2017, 09:00 Uhr bis 17:30 Uhr

The Workshop “Unlocking new data: Linguistic typology as a key to agreement variation” will take place 9 October 2017, in Room RAA-G-01, University of Zurich, as part of the project “The Zurich database of agreement in Italo-Romance varieties”.

The study of agreement is of continuing interest in general linguistics and linguistic typology. Italian dialect varieties display a wealth of interesting phenomena in this area, some of which are unparalleled across Romance, or even within the whole Indo-European language family. However, this wealth of structural diversity has hardly been exploited in typological studies on agreement and thus could not find its way into the international scientific debate, mainly because of the unavailability of the primary data to the international scientific community. We want to fill this gap by developing an online database, consisting of annotated data from seven selected varieties (from north to south): Urbino, Ripatransone, Luras, Agnone, Altamura, Verbicaro, Pantelleria.
