Meeting Description: Whilst there is broad consensus that humans process linguistic input in real time, the dynamics of this process are often not reflected in most formal accounts of linguistic knowledge. Dynamic Syntax (DS; Cann et al. 2005, Kempson et al. 2001, 2011) is a grammar formalism that aims to capture the parsing/production process in real-time. Under the Dynamic Syntax approach, linguistic knowledge is considered to be the ability to parse spoken language in context, whilst syntax is the constraint-based way in which representations of context can be built up from words encountered in a string.

We are pleased to announce that the first Dynamic Syntax conference will take place at SOAS University of London on 19-20 April 2017. The meeting will bring together those using DS in their research, as well as those who are interested in issues that lie at the heart of the theoretical approach.

The conference will also include a DS ‘master class’ providing an introduction to the framework, as well as the tools and mechanisms of analysis.

We are also delighted to announce that Professor Ruth Kempson will deliver the keynote address at the conference.
