Message 2: TRUTHS ABOUT PRONOUNS AND HOW TRUE THEY ARE

Date: Mon, 30 Oct 2000 14:13:31 +0100
From: Elena Filimonova <Elena.Filimonovauni-konstanz.de>
Subject: TRUTHS ABOUT PRONOUNS AND HOW TRUE THEY ARE

Workshop
TRUTHS ABOUT PRONOUNS AND HOW TRUE THEY ARE.
within the framework of the DFG-funded Project "Sprachbaupl�ne" 
http://www.ling.uni-konstanz.de/pages/proj/sprachbau.htm

December 15-16, 2000 University of Konstanz, Germany

Workshop organizers:
Elena Filimonova (Uni Konstanz)
Michael Cysouw (ZAS, Berlin)

The aim of the workshop is to exchange research results and stimulate
further work in the field of language universals, focusing on personal
pronouns.

Chief among the issues discussed will be generalizations, previously
suggested or new, about phonological, morphological and syntactic
properties of personal pronouns, especially those of 1st and 2nd
person. We are planning a special section on the inclusive/exclusive
opposition.

We especially welcome contributions to the following topics:
- Inclusive and Dual.
- Inclusive and 2Pl. 
- Incl/Excl and Gender.
- Inclusive und Associative.
- Incl/Excl and homophony in pronominal paradigm: synchronic and 
diachronic aspects.
- Incl/Excl and free vs. bound morphology.

Further topics:
- Incl/Excl and extra-linguistic aspects: Cultural and interactive meaning 
of the Incl/Excl opposition. Honorific usage of Incl/Excl.
- Diachrony of the Incl/Excl oppostion: Its origin and disapperance. Pidgins 
and Creoles.

In this workshop we will attempt to bring together typological,
historical and theoretical insights, in order to gain a better
understanding of personal pronouns.

Visit the Universals Archive at
http://www.ling.uni-konstanz.de/pages/proj/sprachbau.htm 
to familiarize yourselves with pronoun truths on record.

Those interested in participating are asked to send a short abstract
to one of the following addresses (preferably by e-mail) by 10
