  Co-estimating Human Mobility and Language Dispersal with Ancient DNA and Linguistic Data
  Dr S. Schiffels
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Human mobility is a key factor for the spread of genes and languages, but it affects them in different ways. While genes spread exclusively by movements of people, cultural traits such as languages can spread independently.
  Contact and change in the diversification of the Indo-Iranic languages
  Prof R. Gray
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Indo-Iranic is the largest, and historically the most geographically extensive, branch of the Indo-European language family. It consists of hundreds of languages spread over a vast area of west, central and south Asia, with diffusion even further afield along with migration in the modern period.
  Cross-Linguistic Strategies of Denotation: Advancing data and methods in lexical typology
  Dr J List
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Although on first sight there are many different ways in which the languages classify the world around us, many of the techniques used for naming are surprisingly similar across very different languages.
  Eurasian Corridors of Communication: Fruits, Crops, and Words
  Dr M Robbeets
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The plants on your kitchen table often have a poorly understood history, and an interdisciplinary approach is necessary to study their origin and spread.
  Evolution of Nonverbal Communication: Music and the Voice
  Prof S Schweinberger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Linguistic evolution is a prime topic for the IMPRS, but the human voice can also be used for communicating nonverbal social signals, by spontaneously using prosody and intonation.
  Functional morphology and variability of the auditory system - frameworks in the search for human speech evolution
  Dr A Stoessel
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The capacity for vocal communication using speech is a unique characteristic of modern humans and its origin during human evolution remains obscure.
  The evolution and diversification of the Caucasian languages
  Prof R. Gray
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The importance of the Caucasus for the study of language contact cannot be underestimated. It is the most linguistically diverse area of Europe, with ample evidence of centuries-long contact both within itself and with neighbouring linguistic areas.
