KVIETIMAS Į KONFERENCIJĄ TIME AND TENSE IN CIRCUM-BALTIC
Date 19–20 June, 2018 Location Vilnius University, Lithuania
Description: This conference focuses on the conceptualization of time in grammatical and lexical expressions in the Circum-Baltic languages. We expect talks on the following topics: Tense systems and their interaction with aspect, mood, evidentiality and negation; Expression of simultaneity, anteriority and posteriority (by participles, converbs/gerunds, etc.); Sequencing of events in narration; Adverbs, adpositions and cases marking temporal relations; Adverbs and nouns denoting time spans (expressions like ‘yesterday’, ‘last year’, the names of weekdays and months, etc.); Another dimension of the meeting is relative chronology of the languages of the Circum-Baltic area and we welcome talks dealing with the chronological aspects of language change, borrowing, language splits, etc.
This conference belongs to a series of meetings “Baltic Languages and White Nights” initiated by the State University of Saint Petersburg in 2008 and later organized annually and biannually around the Baltics before the Midsummer. Previous meetings took place in Oslo (2009), Stockholm (2010), Helsinki (2012), Tartu (2014), and Riga (2016).
Major language families and branches: Indo-European (Baltic; Germanic; Slavic); Uralic (Finnic).
Invited speakers: Tuomas Huumo (Turku University) Bernhard Wälchli (Stockholm University).
