Variation within and across Jewish Languages
26-28 June, 2013
Institute of Jewish Studies (University of Antwerp, Belgium)
The conference aims to bring together scholars who work on linguistic aspects of Jewish languages with the focus on domains such as linguistic structure, language variation, language change (dialectology and diachrony), bilingualism and comparison of written and spoken uses. The conference will also stimulate research in to date enriched areas in the domain of Jewish language studies; for example, language acquisition and development (in communities of native speakers), learning of Jewish languages as second language, language loss, etc. In addition, the conference is expected to produce publications that will cover the best of contemporary research on Jewish languages as domain of linguistic inquiry.
The conference language will be English.
