Trasyanka and Surzhyk
International Symposium, University of Oldenburg, June 15th - 18th
Welcome to our conference website!
Oldenburg University's Department of Slavonic Languages is delighted to host an international linguistic conference on "Trasyanka and Surzhyk. Products of Byelorussian-Russian and Ukrainian-Russian language contact". Chief organizer of the conference is Prof. Dr. Gerd Hentschel (Oldenburg). We are glad to have aroused the interest of a considerable number of linguists working on different languages, who will come to Oldenburg and discuss their specific views on this complex matter.
The participation of young linguists from Eastern Europe has been made possible with the financial aid from the Robert-Bosch-Foundation.
On this site we want to provide you with useful information about the conference and the place where it is going to take place. We will be constantly giving new information here in the next couple of weeks, since we are still working on the final version of a conference programme, so please feel encouraged to visit on a regular basis.
