Meeting Description: Workshop #1: Constituent Order Variation
Organized by Ana Maria Martins, Ernestina Carrilho and Sandra Pereira
Project WOChWEL http://alfclul.clul.ul.pt/wochwel/)

Word order is at the core of natural language grammatical systems,
interacting with all their structural components, linking syntax with sound
(prosody) and meaning (semantics/pragmatics), manifesting the
characteristic ‘displacement property’ that lays behind the opposition
between base-generated and derived word orders, and feeding variation
across the geographic and temporal axes. After a long path of investigation
on word order phenomena, novel findings may arise from a good articulation
between the successful but often separate efforts of typologists,
historical and theoretical linguists so as to take full advantage of both
large-scale cross-linguistic surveys and the more circumscribed and in
depth analyses of theory-oriented research.
