In the framework of the Conference a special session will be dedicated to the Greek-Russian language contacts and a workshop entitled “Modern Greek and the Greek dialects in the Diaspora” will be included. 

As we explained in the Call for Papers of the 1st Conference (2016), our decision to organize a conference on language contact in the Balkans and Asia Minor has been motivated by the recognition that research on language contact in these two regions is usually conducted independently, and without mutually benefiting from the results and achievements of studies regarding such phenomena in each of these two regions, despite the fact that these regions share the same two basic languages (Greek and Turkish) and, to a great extent, a common historical background. The conference initiated a fertile discussion between that strand of research whose object of study is language contact in the Balkans and the corresponding one focusing on Asia Minor. In this respect, the papers presented at the conference can be classified under three headings: (a) those focusing on the Balkans, (b) those zeroing in on Asia Minor, and (c) those whose interest lies in the comparative investigation of these two regions. 

The conference is the fifth one in the series of annual international conferences for the diachronic and diatopic study of the Greek language organized by the Institute of Modern Greek Studies, and are alternately devoted to (a) Greek Etymology (2015, 2018), (b) Language Contact in the Balkans and Asia Minor (2016), and (c) Koine, koines and the formation of Modern Greek koine (2017).

The thematic areas of the conference include, but are not limited to: (1) theoretical issues in language contact, (2) language contact and dialectology, (3) language contact and etymology, (4) language contact and typology, (5) language contact and philology. Issues regarding all levels of linguistic analysis that are influenced or determined by language contact (phonology, morphology, syntax, the lexicon, etc.) are addressed.
