Workshop 'Mass and count in Romance and Germanic languages'
coordinated by the University of Zurich's Research Center (UFSP) 'Language and Space' - University of Zurich, 16th and 17th of December 2013)
This workshop is intended as a discussion forum for research on the semantics and morphosyntactic encoding of the mass-count distinction, mainly, but not exclusively, in Romance and Germanic languages and varieties (cf. e.g. the survey in Massam, Diane (ed.) (2012), Count and Mass Across Languages, Oxford: Oxford University Press).
Questions to be addressed concern all kinds of semantic and morphosyntactic phenomena (absence of determiners, partitive determiners, indefinite articles with mass nominals, gender and its interplay with a mass vs. count reading of nominals etc.), and if possible their areal distribution.
