CALL FOR PAPERS SICOGG 14 The 14th Seoul International Conference on Generative Grammar Dongguk University, Seoul August 6(Mon) - 9(Thur), 2012 Co-hosted by the Korean Generative Grammar Circle and Dongguk University Keynote Speaker: Željko Bošković (University of Connecticut) General Session on Three Factors and Syntactic Theory 2012 Seoul International Conference on Generative Grammar will be held at Dongguk University, Seoul, Korea, on August 6(Mon.) to 9 (Thur.), organized by the Korean Generative Grammar Circle. While we especially encourage submissions touching on the theme of the general session specified above, equal consideration will be given to papers from all areas of generative grammar, which may include syntactic theory, syntax-semantics interface, syntaxmorphology interface, syntax-phonology interface, syntactic acquisition, and others. The conference will consist of the general session, an additional workshop, and a series of lectures from the keynote speaker. The theme of the additional workshop is as follows: Workshop on Ellipsis Ellipsis has been an central research area for many linguists. Elliptical constructions interest them because the meaning of the sentence cannot be directly recovered from the words it contains. Resolving this mismatch between meaning and sound yields various research topics, often specific but not limited to ellipsis itself: How can we characterize ellipsis? What are the conditions under which ellipsis takes place? Are these conditions syntactic, semantic, or pragmatic? Do the unpronounced parts of sentence involve syntactic representation? Recent studies on ellipsis also has (indirectly) opened a new window to the nature of syntactic phenomena, such as locality of movement and the nature of islands. Given this, not only does ellipsis raise interesting issues from cross-linguistic perspectives, but it also has become a key domain of research for linguists working on syntax, semantics, pragmatics and psycholinguistics. This workshop aims at bringing together researchers to (re)examine elliptical constructions and provide new insights to the existing views on ellipsis.
