In May (28th-30th) there will be the 12th International Conference on Minority Languages (ICML XII) in Tartu, Estonia. The ICML is hosted by the University of Tartu, but there are colloquia being held by affiliate departments. One such department is the Department of Modern Philology at the Universitá degli Studi di Firenze, which will be holding a colloquium (themed session) entitled “Language contact and change in multiply and multimodally bilingual minority situations.”
The colloquium deals with bimodal bilingualism approached as a minority language in need of typological standardization and contact-induced grammatical change.
