|Meeting Description:||Special session: Empirical Approaches to Information Structure
Linguists working on information structure (IS) will agree that the issue of IS can only be adequately discussed with reference to a specific theoretical framework and based on solid empirical evidence. However, they will disagree on exactly what kind of empirical data is needed and on how it is to be implemented in a grammatical model that accounts for the syntactic and prosodic form and gives rise to the intended semantic and pragmatic meaning.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers embracing different empirical approaches to IS to discuss the different types of linguistic evidence in relation to models of information structure.
