  • Postponed/Cancelled: Afrikaans Grammar Workshop | Postponed/Cancelled | Amsterdam
    year or so with information about alternate plans for a workshop in 2017 or 2018 Please accept our sincere apologies and watch this spot for updates Afrikaans is unique among the Germanic languages in several ways Notably it is the only language of the Germanic family that originated outside of Europe and that is spoken primarily in Africa Due to the unique historical context in which Afrikaans developed it has grammatical features setting it apart from the rest of the Germanic family Afrikaans is also the first language of over seven million people and the third largest language in South Africa In spite of its uniqueness and the size of the Afrikaans speech community Afrikaans is relatively understudied and underdescribed from the perspective of theoretical linguistics This workshop seeks to address the paucity of descriptive and theoretical studies of Afrikaans in contemporary linguistics by bringing together scholars who work on any aspect of Afrikaans grammar for a two day workshop We welcome contributions on any aspect of Afrikaans grammar from both a descriptive and theoretical perspective Possible topics include but are not limited to Phonetics acoustic articulatory perceptual Phonology Morphology Syntax Semantics Pragmatics History of Afrikaans Sociolinguistics of Afrikaans Dialectology
