International workshop on Information structure of Austronesian languages

Posted:2013.11.13

Aims

This workshop brings together researchers with a more general theoretical background in information structure (IS) research and specialists on Austronesian languages with a more language-specific, genealogical-areal interest in information structure. We expect this combination of perspectives on Information Structure in Austronesian Languages will yield novel insights on and meaningful contributions to the understanding of both IS in general, and the structure of Austronesian languages. The below is the link to the further explanation of this project.
