Complex Predicates in South Asian Languages

Conference URL:

The School of Language Sciences, English and Foreign Languages University (Hyderabad) will be holding a workshop on complex predicates in South Asian languages, on 20-21 January 2012. Important work is currently being done on the analysis of verb classes and the syntax of verbal projections especially in the framework of First Phase syntax (Gillian Ramchand 2008). Some of the areas it has been applied to are the complex predicates in Persian, causativization in Hindi/Urdu, resultatives and verb-particle constructions in English etc. This workshop will focus on understanding complex predicates in South Asian languages in the new frameworks that are currently evolving. Invited Speakers (confirmed): Gillian Ramchand, Probal Dasgupta, Tanmoy Bhattacharya, M.T. Hany Babu Call for Papers: We invite abstracts for 40 minute slots on topics pertaining to complex predicates, as manifested in languages spoken in South Asia and its diaspora. We also plan to publish a volume of selected papers from the conference.
