Members of the Linguistic Convergence Laboratory contributed chapters to new Oxford Handbook of Languages of the Caucasus
A new Oxford Handbook dedicated to the languages of the Caucasus appeared this month. It contains several contributions from members of the Linguistic Convergence Laboratory.
This fall the Linguistic Convergence Laboratory will organize a free online course on the East Caucasian (alias Nakh-Daghestanian) language family. The course will start on October 14.
At the end of the summer members of the Laboratory presented their researches at two large international conferences on linguistics — SLE and ALT.
