Workshop international ‘Triggers of Language Change in the Language Sciences’
9h-18h
Grand Amphithéâtre de l'Université Lyon 2

The conference is part of the "X in the Language Sciences" (XLanS) series which aims to bring a wide range of researchers together to focus on a particular topic in language that interests them. The goal is to identify the crucial issues and connect them with cutting-edge techniques in order to develop better explanations of linguistic phenomena (see details of the first XLanS conference here).

This year's topic is 'triggers of change': What causes a sound system or lexicon or grammatical system to change? How can we explain rapid changes followed by periods of stability? Can we predict the direction and rate of change according to external influences?

Invited speakers:

  • Michael C. Gavin (Colorado State University)
  • Olivier Morin (Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History)
  • Monica Tamariz (Heriot Watt University)
  • Sarah Thomason (University of Michigan)
  • Brigitte Pakendorf (University of Lyon)
  • Márton Sóskuthy (University of York)
