Hiwa at conferences in Oxford and Bucharest

Hiwa Asadpour will give papers at two international conferences in August. Congratulations!!

He will present a paper on “Flagging-drop typology and its relevance on Target Word Ordering” at the International Conference on Historical Linguistics 2022, ICHL 25 — University of Oxford, 1-5 August 2022. In this paper, Hiwa will investigate the variability of marking (so-called flagging) Target arguments and motivations for variation in flagging of these arguments. Hiwa uses Target as an umbrella term for various semantic roles such as goals, recipients, addressees, and final-states.

He will also be giving a talk at the 55th Annual Meeting of the Societas Linguistica Europaea, 24–27 August 2022, University of Bucharest, “Iorgu Iordan – Al. Rosetti” Institute of Linguistics.
Through a multifactorial analysis, the paper will investigate word order variation among genetically unrelated languages such as Mukri Kurdish, Northeastern Kurdish (NEK), Jewish and Christian Neo-Aramaic, Armenian, and Azeri Turkic in Northwest Iran. The paper will be presented in the workshop “Multifactorial approaches to word order change”.

Stay tuned for the write-up of these studies!
