Typology of small-scale multilingualism

From April 15, 2019 to April 17, 2019

Maison Internationale des Langues et des Culture (MILC), 35 rue Raulin, 69007 Lyon

This conference is organized by the laboratoire Dynamique du Langage (DDL), the Laboratory of Linguistic Convergence (HSE, Moscow), and Institute of Linguistics (Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow), with funding generously provided by the LabEx ASLAN and the Collegium de Lyon.

Small-scale multilingualism (Lüpke 2016, Singer & Harris 2016) is typical for pre-colonial societies with small socio-political groups which have no overarching hierarchical political structure joining them. The aim of the conference is to attract descriptive studies from lesser-known geographical locations and to develop a set of parameters for comparing different sociolinguistic settings across the world.
