Welcome to the Uralic Typology Pages!  


                                                                                                                        The pages in Italian - in Russian 




This is the workspace for Uralic Typology. The interactive page contains the news about upcoming events, a forum and a collection of links and data sources on Uralic languages. The purpose of these pages is the following:

  • to advance the scientific study of the Uralic languages (official languages as well as variants) and define their structures within the context of cross-linguistic diversity;
  • to further mutual awareness, dialogue, and co-operation between the international community of linguists specialized on the particular Uralic languages and those interested in the Uralic data across theoretical frameworks and subdisciplines;
  • to provide an interactive workspace for academic and educational events concerning the Uralic languages;
  • to provide an interactive workspace for working towards a database structure (more in Russian) that is useful for linguists across linguistic frameworks, in the spirit of linguistic typology;
  • and by doing so, to identify the areas of critically missing research and to increase the quality of education and the advancement of new curricula of the Uralic linguistics.
