We are very pleased to announce that the first workshop on Turkish, Turkic and the languages of Turkey (Tu+ 1) will be held at UMass, Amherst on Saturday, November 21 and Sunday, November 22, 2015.

The program is now up!

Invited speakers:
Sabine Iatridou (MIT) — “On Conditionals, like the other Sabine”
Jaklin Kornfilt (Syracuse University) — “Similarities and differences between N-complement and Relative Clause constructions in two Turkic languages”

The impulse behind Tu+ 1 is to create a collaborative environment to socialize and share ideas, little or big.
