TALD (Typological Atlas of the Languages of Daghestan) v. 1.0.0 Now Public

The Linguistic Convergence Laboratory has released TALD: the Typological Atlas of the Languages of Daghestan. This new resource provides information about linguistic structures that are characteristic of Daghestan, and offers different types of map visualizations to illustrate the geographical and genealogical distribution of features.

In 2021, members of the Linguistic Convergence Laboratory published three articles on the Russian language in Dagestan

Dagestan is a relatively new territory for the spread of the Russian language. At the end of the 19th century, very few people spoke Russian here. In addition to indigenous languages, which Dagestan is very rich in (linguists count more than forty languages ​​in this small territory), local people spoke Azerbaijani, Georgian, Chechen and Arabic. But there has never been a language common for all residents of Dagestan (the language of interethnic communication or lingua franca). Russian became the first such language for Dagestan.

Members of the Linguistic Convergence Laboratory participated in the webinar “Languages, Dialects and Isoglosses of Anatolia, the Caucasus and Iran”

The sixth session of the webinar “Languages, Dialects and Isoglosses of Anatolia, the Caucasus and Iran” hosted a talk by Chiara Naccarato, Samira Verhees, Michael Daniel and Timofey Mukhin.

Members of the Linguistic convergence laboratory participated in the SLE conference online

The 53rd SLE conference was held in an unconventional format for the first time in history. The Linguistic convergence laboratory was represented by a number of talks.
