4th International Conference on Kurdish Linguistics


University of Rouen Normandie, France

September 2-3, 2019

After three conferences in Bamberg (2013), Mardin (2014) and Amsterdam (2016), we are happy to announce that the 4th International Conference on Kurdish Linguistics (ICKL-4) will take place at the University of Rouen (Université de Rouen) on September 2-3, 2019. The event is organized by the Research Laboratory 7474 DYLIS (Dynamique du Langage in Situ) at the University of Rouen.

The ICKL conferences serve as a forum of scientific exchange for linguists of different theoretical backgrounds working on any aspect of Kurdish, including the interactions with its neighboring languages. Accordingly, we welcome contributions which address these issues from the perspectives of various subdomains of linguistics, such as sociolinguistics, descriptive and typologically-oriented analyses of phonology, morphology and syntax, grammaticalization and historical development, formal approaches to the grammar, pragmatics, language acquisition, language contact, corpus linguistics, and applied linguistics. The conference will be conducted in English and in French.
