Language Diversity, Contact and Change

All day
Through June 16, 2019
University of Chicago Center in Beijing

Begins
Jun. 14

The linguistic landscape in China is highly diverse. The living languages currently spoken in China are estimated to be around 300 (Ethnologue). The socio-economic changes in China in the last four decades have had profound implications for language variation and change. Rapid urbanization of rural areas and increased mobility of workers created many communities with intensive language contact. Traditional research on language diversity has focused more on grammar description and documentation of minority languages. But the complexity of the issues calls for theoretical and methodological innovations, and the traditional boundaries between different disciplines that are concerned with language variation and change must be renegotiated. To this end, the current workshop is an attempt to initiate exchange between researchers from a wide range of specializations, including language typology, language documentation, social-cultural studies of language policy and language attitude/identity, language evolution, and experimental/computational investigations about language diversity and change.
