Dear colleagues,

Please see below for a symposium on the causes of language change.




Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language Symposium: Investigating causes of language change

Western Sydney University, Parramatta South 15-16 November 2016


This interdisciplinary 2-day symposium aims at bringing together linguists interested in investigating causes of language change and experts in areas outside linguistics that are often seen as containing triggers for language change. The concrete goal is to outline a research programme and investigative approaches that systematically investigate causes of language change using interdisciplinary approaches combining linguistic with extra-linguistic expertise. Day 1 features specialists in speech production, psycholinguistics, neuroscience, psychology and economics as well as historical linguistics giving overviews of their relevant fields. On day 2 interested researchers join together in workshops to develop concrete approaches. We call for registrations by interested researchers for one or both days to join this symposium via email to the organisers by 31 October 2016. For day 1 a broader audience is welcome, but for day 2 we ask to register only if you have a concrete interest in researching causes of language change from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Invited speakers:

Prof. Cathi Best (Western Sydney University), child language

Prof. Ina Bornkessel-Schlesewsky (University of South Australia), neuroscience

Dr Tegan Cruwys (University of Queensland), psychology

Prof. Anne Cutler (Western Sydney University), psycholinguistics
