Soziolinguistica y Language Planning

12. - 14.12.2002
In consideration of the renewed interest in the less used languages and minority cultures, which permeates the legislative and cultural activity of the European Union and that of the many member states, and hoping that this will bear fruit not only scientifically relevant but also in behalf of the minority cultures, the Servisc de Planificazion y Elaborazion dl Lingaz Ladin (SPELL) of the Union Generela di Ladins dla Dolomites, together with the European Centre for Linguistic Studies (CELE) and the support of the European Commission, organises an international conference with the title Corpus planning and sociolinguistics.
It will particularly focus on the encoding and the standardisation of the minority languages in Europe.
Starting with an analysis of the late activities on corpus planning (which particularly deal with the lexicographic aspect) through the mediation of sociolinguistics, the meeting days will furthermore examine themes concerning the status planning of minority languages.
The main thematic fields will therefore be:
- Corpus planning
- Sociolinguistics of the language planning
- Status planning
The initial part shall give an overall view on sociolinguistics as a connecting point between corpus planning and status planning.
In the following lectures projects about sociolinguistic and terminological researches on minority languages are presented.
The main part of lectures concerns three thematic fields:
The first part regarding corpus planning examines themes on terminology and lexicography. Furthermore some workshops dealing with researches on the
standardisation of minority languages are organised. Among other things there is given space to Ladin, Friulian, Sardinian, Sorbian and Finnish.
The second part comprises treatises on sociolinguistic research as a means for language planning. They will particularly focus on the relationship between normalisation and sociolinguistic and the attitudes towards languages in contact.
The third section deals with status planning of some European languages. The lectures as well as a roundtable inform about Romantsch grischun, Basque, Lappish and about the new status of the languages in Russia.
