Akkadian Historical Linguistics: on the occasion of John Huehnergard's retirement - 21-22/04/2018, Austin (TX, USA)




During his scholarly career, John Huehnergard has extensively worked on Akkadian and its dialects. Besides studies on Akkadian phonology, morphology, and syntax, he has written the standard teaching grammar
used for introductory classes at many universities today. This conference, a tribute to his contribution to the field, gathers renown scholars from the US, Canada, and Europe who work on various aspects of Akkadian from a historical and comparative perspective and who reflect his broad interests. The conference will cover a wide range of topics relating to Akkadian Historical Linguistics, including lexicon, word order, syntax, language contact, numerals, and subgrouping.
