Language Theory and dialectology 4 – The language of the Károli Bible 17 October, 2017

The Language Theory and dialectology Conference organized by the Department of Theoretical Linguistics and the Department of Hungarian Linguistics of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of Pázmány Péter Catholic University is dedicated to the Language of the Károli Bible in 2017.

The Language Theory and dialectology Conference organized by the Department of Theoretical Linguistics and the Department of Hungarian Linguistics of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of Pázmány Péter Catholic University is dedicated to the Language of the Károli Bible in 2017. The Károli Bible holds a prominent place in the history of the Hungarian language regarding its grammar, vocabulary, style and spelling as well, as it is considered an important turning-point. Regarding its grammar, it can be observed that the specific characteristics of the SOV language sentences inherited from the Ugric proto-language are less frequent, and the SVO features reflecting Indo-European languages and today’s Hungarian as well are becoming more significant. Its vocabulary and word formation are innovative as well compared to previous Bible-translations. On its elevated style yet appearing very natural one would think it is a translation; the source language cannot be detected anymore. Certain spelling structures are integrated our today’s spelling system. If you would like to participate, you can submit your abstract for the conference in topics related to these issues. We are happy to receive articles about the syntax, morphology, phonology, vocabulary, style, archaic and innovative features, influence on the balance of dialects, literary language of the Bible and its relation to other Middle-Hungarian and Old-Hungarian Bible-translations, source texts and the contemporary European Bible translations.

The conference will be held at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of Pázmány Péter Catholic University, 17-18 October, 2017. There will be 30-minute presentations at the conference; every presentation will be followed by a 10-minute discussion.

The conference is sponsored by the REB-17-KONFERENCIA-0033 tender of the Hungarian Ministry of Human Capacities
