SAALS 4: 4th Saami Linguistics Symposium

The Symposium is the continuation of a series of international symposia previously held in Tromsø in 2006 and 2009, and in Freiburg in 2017. The purpose of the symposium is to give researchers the opportunity to present current research, participate in formal and informal discussions on relevant topics, and explore potential opportunities for collaborative work. We especially encourage younger researchers at the Master’s and PhD levels to present their work.

Papers related to all aspects of Saami languages and linguistics are welcome. The keynote speech will be given by Johanna Nichols (Berkeley) and address the topic of the typological westernization of Saamic. With this in mind, we are particularly looking forward to papers drawing on typological research. As it has been 400 years since the publication of the first book in Saami we also look forward to papers on the history of the written languages.

Please submit an anonymous, one-page abstract – in PDF format only – in English or a Saami language via EasyChair by 31 July 2019.

Notification to authors: 15 September 2019.
