Centre for the Greek Language
International Conference on Ancient Greek Dialects and the theme:
The Linguistic Map of Central and Northern Greece in Antiquity
Thessaloniki (Greece), May 10-13, 2015
Aristotle University Research Dissemination Center
The emphasis of the conference is on the linguistic map of Central and Northern Greece in antiquity (from the beginnings up to the Roman period). More specifically, the focus of the conference is on the dialect map of Central and Northern Greece, i.e. Thessaly, Boeotia, Aetolia, Epirus, Macedonia, Thrace, and the islands of Northern Aegean along with the coast of Asia Minor and the Black Sea. The papers deal with all aspects of the linguistic make-up of the area under investigation (various phonological issues, morphological problems, and syntactic phenomena) and with all types of evidence: epigraphic, textual, lexicographical, onomastics and other information that attest to the linguistic map of the area, as well as intra-dialect variations and/or sub-divisions, and relations of Greek to other languages of the wider vicinity, such as the ancient Balkan languages. A number of papers take a comparative view as to the way the various dialects interact with one another, whereas other participants take a sociolinguistic approach to the dialects investigated, the various strata and/or substrata observed, the dialectal and/or language admixture, dialect continuum, etc.
The language of the Conference will be English.
