‘Theoretical Linguistics and Languages of the Caucasus’ Conference is organized by İstanbul Bilgi University Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities.

‘Theoretical Linguistics and Languages of the Caucasus’ (TLLC) is a 2-day workshop on the languages of the Caucasus to be held at İstanbul Bilgi University between June 18–19, 2022, co-hosted by Laz Institute and İstanbul Caucasian Culture Association. We welcome contributions on the theoretical analyses of the phonological, morphological, and syntactic issues observed in Caucasian languages as well as Turkic and Indo-European languages spoken in the Caucasus. Regular talks will be 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for discussion.

Note that TLLC is being planned as a face-to-face event. In case of travel restrictions and other similar measures that may be imposed, we may have to switch to a hybrid format.
