CfP: Panel on Unusual Grammars

I am hoping to organize a panel at the Henry Sweet Society Colloquium 2019 on grammars that are based on models that are or might seem unusual, at least from our modern vantage point. An example might be John Palsgrave’s Lesclarcissement de la langue francoyse (1530), modeled on Theodore Gaza’s Greek grammar, on which I aim to present a paper as part of the panel.

Abstracts of no longer than 250 words and including the presenter’s name, affiliation, and contact details can be sent to raf.vanrooy@kuleuven.be before 1 February 2019.

In agreement with the colloquium’s regulations, presentations should last about 20 minutes with 10 minutes Q&A time.
