Syntactic Change in Progress (SCiP)

University of Konstanz, 19th May 2021

There is a lively tradition of work on syntactic change in sociolinguistics, and another lively tradition of work on syntactic change in historical corpus linguistics. At present, however, theorizing in the two traditions has proceeded in relative isolation. Recent years have also seen a surge in theoretically-informed work on dialect syntax, adding another dimension to the picture. This workshop - a one-day event attached to the Diachronic Generative Syntax conference - aims to stimulate dialogue and explore points of convergence and divergence between these different approaches.
