Event description
HaCKS workshop about approaches to indexicality - 28/05/2019

About this Event

HaCKS (Historical and Contemporary Knowledgebase in Sociolinguistics) aims to approach key topics in linguistics from a sociolinguistic angle and provide a twofold platform for discussion of these issues: a programme of workshops and an accompanying blog for continued discussion.

The central theme of our workshops this year is indexicality. Any element of language that is used and understood as a socially meaningful 'signpost' - ie. a linguistic indicator of a specific social group - can be said to be indexical of that group.

We hope to put into dialogue the applications of this concept in both historical and modern linguistics, especially in sub-fields in which this term is not typically applied. We very much encourage discussion and interfaces between linguistic sub-fields. Presentations will come from various perspectives, including historical linguistics, dialectology and syntax
