Languages of the Seven Countries

The HPSG community supports academic dialog and collaboration between people of all nations and languages. The goal of this special session is to promote free academic dialog in spite of policies which try to restrict it.

It focuses on languages from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, and is not restricted to any particular theoretic framework.
