Dans le cadre des séminaires du laboratoire DDL (Dynamique du langage), Nina Dobrushina, fellow EURIAS en résidence au Collegium en 2016-2017, donnera une présentation intitulée " Multilingualism and linguistic diversity: a retrospective field research".
Résumé : Reconstructing contact situations for an unwritten language is a challenging task, as the sociolinguistic past of the speech community is very rarely documented. In this talk, I will present a research in which a method of retrospective family interviews is applied, where respondents’ recollections about recent multilingual past, and in particular about the language repertoires of their elder relatives, are converted into quantitative data. The method was applied in Daghestan, a place of extreme linguistic density. The results of the field study of a large set of Daghestanian language communities will be surveyed. The main findings comprise the ways of acquisition of the second language, the patterns of neighbor and distant multilingualism, the gender biases in language repertoires as well as their diachronic trends. I will also suggest an explanation of how the patterns of multilingualism thus reconstructed could have been favoring the linguistic diversity of the region.

La présentation sera suivie par une intervention de de Brigitte Pakendorf intitulée "How, when and why: Trying to reconstruct the copying of verbal paradigms in Lamunkhin Even" (11h-12h)
