		BOUND PRONOUNS

A workshop to be conducted in conjunction with the conference on The
Syntax of Semitic Languages and its Interfaces, Department of Linguistics,
University of Southern California

Date: May 3, �2001�

What is the status of bound pronouns in the grammar? How are they
derived? What are the conditions on their licensing and interpretation? 
What do they contribute to the syntactic and semantic structures of
sentences?

many of these issues have acquired new significance. It is for this
reason that the Department of Linguistics at the University of Southern
California, in conjunction with its conference on the Syntax of Semitic
Languages and its Interfaces, will be hosting a workshop devoted to the
topic of Bound Pronouns.

Abstracts are invited for 30 or 40 minute talks (plus 15 minute

including, but not limited its syntactic and semantic ramifications.
