Message 2: Topic & focus

From: Sergio Baauw <sergio.baauwlet.uu.nl>
Subject: Topic & focus

CALL FOR PAPERS
Topic & focus

Utrecht University, December 2
Workshop incorporated in Going Romance, Nov. 30-Dec. 2

Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS (UiL OTS),
Holland Institute of Generative Linguistics (HIL)

Invited speakers: Knud Lambrecht, Mar�a Luisa Zubizarreta (to be confirmed)

The workshop will explore topic and focus in Romance Languages. Topic and
focus have effects on word order, on prosody and on the interpretation of
sentences, and as such constitute an ideal empirical domain for the study
of the interaction between syntax, phonology and semantics/ pragmatics. We
welcome papers from different theoretical perspectives. The relation
between syntactic, prosodic and semantic/ pragmatic effects of topic and
focus will be of special interest.

Abstracts are invited for thirty minutes talks (with an additional ten
minutes for discussion). Abstracts should be anonymous, and should be no
longer than two pages including references and examples, with margins of at
least 1-inch, letter size 11/12. Submissions are limited to a maximum of
one individual and one joint abstract per author. Please provide 7
anonymous abstracts and one camera-ready original containing title,
author's name and affiliation. Submissions per e-mail or fax will not be
accepted. A separate card should contain the title of the paper, author's
name, affiliation, address, telephone number and e-mail address. All
authors who present their work at the workshop or at the main session of
the conference will be invited to publish their papers in the Proceedings
Volume, for which we already have an initial agreement with a publisher.

Deadline for receipt of abstracts: September 22, 2000
