Multiethnolect Workshop

 9-10 June 2022

University of Zurich, Rämistrasse 71, 8006 Zürich, Room KOL-F-104 (NEW ROOM)

 

The Sounds of Multiethnolects in (Western) Europe

Since about 2000, the emergence of multiethnolects has been observed among adolescents in various European cities. While most studies have considered morphosyntactic, lexical or pragmatic characteristics of these new speaking styles, this workshop instead focused on phonetic features, bringing together a number of renowned scholars in this field who work on different multiethnolects.

 

Two-Day Workshop at the University of Zurich (9-10 June 2022)

The workshop took place on Thursday 9 and Friday 10 June 2022 at the University of Zurich (Switzerland). Talks were  45 minutes to allow for enough room for fruitful discussions (30 minutes presentation & 15 minutes discussion).
