The purpose of the Uralic Typological Database Meeting in Tallinn 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 in the particular Uralic

languages and those interested in the Uralic data across theoretical frameworks and subdisciplines;

    * to provide a forum for the Uralic languages and for working towards a database structure 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 in the Uralic linguistics
