Typological hierarchies in synchrony and diachrony


Since I wrote my doctoral dissertation (appeared in book form as Zúñiga 2006), I have continued working on issues related to typological hierarchies — e.g. in the RHIM/EuroBABEL project focusing on, but not limited to, Mapudungun and Blackfoot inversion. In mid-2013, Sonia Cristofaro (University of Pavia) and I started collaborative work on more general theoretical and typological issues related to hierarchical constructs. We organized the following international workshop at the 2013 ALT meeting (based upon which an edited volume is in preparation):

    Theme Session on Typological Hierarchies in Synchrony and Diachrony

    10th ALT Biennial Conference, Leipzig (15-18.08.13)
