Colloquium “Documenter et décrire les langues d’Asie : histoire et épistémologie”

The SHESL 2022 colloquium entitled “Documenter et décrire les langues d’Asie : histoire et épistémologie”, under the scientific responsibility of SHESL, HTL, TIC and Germanic countries, will be held from January 26 to 28, 2022.

Georges-Jean Pinault, member of our team (EA2120 GREI), will speak on January 27 at 2 p.m. (plenary conference entitled: “Iranians, Tocharians, Turks: languages, texts and cultures of Central Asia”).

This symposium proposes to approach, from a historical and/or epistemological point of view, the activities of documentation and description of the languages ​​of Asia. “Asia” is to be taken here in the broad sense attributed to it by the Asiatic Society, that is to say as designating a zone extending from the Maghreb to the Far East.

“Asian language documentation and description activities” means:
– on the one hand, the collection of linguistic data, in all its forms (lists of words, constitution of archives, funds, “linguistic survey”, questionnaires, audio and/or video recordings, corpus , databases, etc.);
– on the other hand, the development of tools making it possible to represent, in synchrony or in diachrony, a language: writing systems, grammars, monolingual dictionaries, lexicons, translation tools (for example bi – or trilingual dictionaries), manuals, treatises on poetry, rhetoric, etc.
