This workshop is devoted to the study of case systems in Uralic languages. The Uralic languages are well known for their rich case inventories. However, most studies of Uralic cases deal with the rather extensively studied Hungarian, Finnish and perhaps Estonian cases and case systems. Cases of other Uralic languages have been studied to a much lesser extent. The goal of this workshop is to fill that void by giving a fuller picture of case systems of Uralic languages (including dialects). We thus especially encourage contributions dealing with lesser-studied Uralic languages (such as Samoyedic, Mari, Mordvinian, Sami languages and Khanty).


The workshop consists of two parts. The first part of the workshop clarifies the phenomena, the terminology and the comparability of the data in the individual languages, as specific to Uralic and in more general terms. The second part accumulates knowledge about the case systems of each language, and about the specific cases in Uralic languages and dialects. We plan ‘case studies of case’, such as genitive, partitive, abessive, locatives, comitative etc. in Uralic languages, both in individual languages and across (Uralic) languages, and we invite papers on more general issues, such as the 'Uralicness' of the case systems and cases.


Please send your anonymous abstract, maximum 2 pages (including examples and references, titled, e.g. anonymouskarelian.pdf), and the same abstract containing your data and named yournameabstract.pdf (e.g., SmithAbstract.pdf), by January 25, 2010 to the organizers Seppo Kittilä and Anne Tamm, seppo.kittila at helsinki.fi and anne.tamm at unifi.it . Authors will be notified about the acceptance status of their paper by January 31.
