The more languages are known, the more linguistic science is led to redefine its hypotheses about language universals. For more than 15 years, linguistic typology has taken a new perspective by focusing on the diversity of the world’s languages as they can be observed empirically in the field.

     The purpose of this 2014 summer school is to bring graduate or PhD students together with linguistic scholars currently active in the exploration of language diversity. Speakers will present the principal methods used in the field, showing how the data collected in the field can be analysed and interpreted, paving the way for potential new perspectives on language.

     Participants in the school will be given tools and advice in order to carry out a personal project of linguistic exploration, concerning a language as yet little-documented. Some participants may already have such a project ready, while others will set up their own plans along with the Summer school. The event will be interactive , so as to foster interaction between researchers and students.

The summer school is open to graduate or PhD students as well as confirmed scholars (whether in linguistics or related fields) with a desire to set up a fieldwork project. Each session will last 90 minutes, and revolve around a presentation by a leading scholar in the field. Each presentation will be followed by a discussion with the participants, with a preference for hands-on problem solving. Invited speakers include Martin Haspelmath (MPI, Leipzig) and Denis Creissels (DDL, Lyon) – see program below.

     The languages of the Summer school will be French and English. Presentations will be given in French or in English, depending on the preferences of the audience and/or of the speaker. Please state your language preference when you register. Informal discussions among participants will likely take place partly in French, so some knowledge of French will be a plus.

 

Venue and dates

The school will take place in the picturesque coastal town of Roscoff (northern Brittany). The venue will be the Station biologique de Roscoff, a scientific campus specialised in oceanography, which is also a conference centre for CNRS.
The school will take place from Monday 7 to Saturday 12 July 2014. Participants will be accommodated on campus or in a nearby hotel; they will arrive Sunday afternoon, and leave on the Saturday after lunch.
