Balkan Slavic and the Balkan Languages

Background and New Perspectives

Lecture by Prof. Dr. Victor A. Friedman (University of Chicago & La Trobe University)

Institut für Slawistik
Spitalgasse 2-4, Hof 3, 1090 Wien


The Balkan Slavic languages (Bulgarian, Macedonian, and the Torlak dialects of the former Serbo-Croatian) are unique in the context of Slavic linguistics and central (both geographically and linguistically) in the Balkan Sprachbund. This lecture will present some of the basic facts that support this view as well as some newer investigations that contribute to the understanding of how contact linguistics is crucial to the understanding of Slavic linguistics.
