linguistics, more specifically in, but not limited to, phonology,
morphology, semantics, sign language, language acquisition and syntax.

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS


Workshop during the LSA Summer Institute

"Perspectives on Clitic and Agreement Affix Combinations"


University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana
July 28, 1999

We cordially invite abstracts for a one-day workshop on syntactic
approaches to clitic and agreement combinations. Please submit as an
attachment to your e-mail a one-page anonymous abstract (maximum 500 words
plus bibliography/figures) in English. The document should be in word.
Include your name, affiliation, and the title of your paper in the body of
the e-mail. Please do not place the abstract in the body of the e-mail.
Send e-mail submissions to lheggieilstu.edu. WE ENCOURAGE E-MAIL
SUBMISSIONS.
 For snail mail submission send five copies of the one page anonymous
abstract. Include with your submission the following information on a 4 x
6 index card: name(s), affiliation(s), title of your paper, mailing
address, e-mail address, phone and fax numbers, and the name.
TOPICS TO BE EXPLORED
The aspects of clitic/agreement affix combinations to be explored are the
following:


1) Are there universals in the ordering of clitic and agreement affixes in
natural languages? Why are some orders more common than others? Do some
orders imply other orders?


2) Should clitics/agreement be analyzed entirely within the morphology
component (Bonet 1991, Halle and Marantz 1993, Harris 1995) or can syntax
still illuminate certain aspects of the restrictions on their combinations?
(Terzi (forthcoming), Ormazabal and Romero 1998, Franks 1998)


3) Recently, this topic has been the focus of optimality theory (Gerlach
1997, Grimshaw 1997, Heap 1996). Does optimality theory capture all the
aspects of clitic/affix combinations we want to account for?


Presentation time for papers will be limited to 20 minutes
plus 10 minutes for discussion.

THE DEADLINE FOR RECEIPT OF ABSTRACTS IS MAY 17, 1999.
Presenters will be notified by JUNE 1, 1999.
